Conference Details


March 5 - 8, 2017
Buffalo House, Teton Village, Wyoming

Neurosurgery at Jackson Hole is a small gathering of key opinion leaders specifically dedicated to neurologic, neurosurgical and vascular disease, with presentations of cases and case series, problems and complications, clinical research, new technology, industry role in evolving technology, and analysis of the changes facing our healthcare system.

Comprehensive and frank discussion following each presentation provides an opportunity for bridging the gap between research and implementation of newer treatments for the diseases we face, as well as in-depth clarification and discussion of controversial clinical issues and outcomes among current available treatments to help improve the management of complications.

Learning Objectives:

This meeting will focus on the following learning objectives:

  • Review current research and clinical developments in the indications, diagnostic techniques, methods of therapy, and treatment alternatives for the management of brain tumors, cerebrovascular diseases. epilepsy, trauma, and spinal disorders.
  • Examine controversial clinical and research issues pertinent to CNS diseases.
  • Evaluate perioperative and overall rates of morbidity and mortality for specific treatments used to manage CNS diseases.
  • Develop treatment plans designed to reduce the incidence of perioperative complications and reduce the overall rate of morbidity and mortality.

CME credit will not be offered for course.

Intended Audience:

This conference is designed for neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and professionals involved in the treatment of central nervous system diseases.
