Robotic Exoscope Fluorescence-Guided Surgery: A New Paradigm
Location: NeuroHub
Faculty: Dr. Costas Hadjipanayis, MD, UPMC
Sponsored by Synaptive

Join Synaptive Medical in the Neuro Hub on Saturday April 22nd, to learn more about their Next - Generation robotic exoscope Modus X. Industry leader Dr. Costas Hadjipanayis will be sharing his early accounts as the first surgeon in the world to utilize Modus X for fluorescence guided surgery.

Sunday, April 23

10:24-10:54 am

Navigated Microscope Integration and Heads Up Display in the Neurosurgical Workflow
Location: NeuroHub
Faculty: Joshua Bederson, MD
Sponsored by Brainlab & ZEISS

Joshua B. Bederson, MD, is the Leonard I. Malis, MD / Corinne and Joseph Graber Professor of Neurosurgery and System Chair for the Department of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Health System in New York, Manhattan's busiest neurosurgery department. In this talk Dr Bederson will present his experience with more than 450 cases using microscope integration and Heads-up-display using the Brainlab® Curve® and Kinevo® 900 from Zeiss. Augmented reality in the form of heads-up-display has remarkably evolved over the last few years, Dr. Bederson will outline his experience of integrating these tools into the intraoperative workflow and the value of segmented structures and their utility during preoperative planning and surgical resection. The presentation will focus on how advanced digital technologies such as these can be fully incorporated into the daily workflow of a busy neurosurgery practice

12:30-1:30 pm

Leveraging Technology to Faciliate a Single Position Comprehensive Approach: Excelsius™ Prone Lateral Surgical Solution
Location: Booth 1620
Sponsored by: Globus Medical

Faculty will discuss their clinical experience with planning and patient positioning using the ExcelsiusTM Prone Lateral Surgical Solution. Attendees will have a better understanding of procedural workflow, how the new Prone Lateral Patient Positioner provides optimized support for patient positioning and how robotic navigation can help enable more efficiency in the operating room. There will be case examples and discussion, as well as tips and tricks for managing different patient anatomies and achieving the desired surgical outcomes.

Aible™ | The Connected Everything | Overcoming Obstacles Through Integration
Location: Booth 1630
Faculty: Michael Lawton
Sponsored by: Medtronic

PTP—The Evolution of the Lateral Approach
Location: Booth 1820
Faculty: Luiz Pimenta
Sponsored by: Atec

PTP utilizes a maximally efficient prone position while providing a consistently reproducible approach, enabling the surgeon to achieve powerful alignment. PTP is the next step for lateral interbody fusion, bringing together the benefits of an MIS transpsoas approach with the advantages of an ergonomic prone position, facilitating an intuitively superior single-position surgery used to treat a wide range of patient pathologies.

Tumor & Pediatrics
Location: Booth 1840
Faculty: Sandro Krieg
Sponsored by: Nexstim

As the author of ”nTMS in neurosurgery” Krieg provides a comprehensive overview on nTMS as a perioperative adjunct which revolutionized neurophysiology by providing non-invasive risk assessment and postoperative treatment of surgery-related motor deficits. Insights on recently published machine learning approaches and current evidence on nTMS vs awake surgery will complete his presentation. Narayana demonstrates the feasibility of nTMS motor and language mapping in children and discusses their integration into pediatric tumor and epilepsy surgeries.

Sunday, April 23

12:30-1:30 pm

Join us to learn about OptiLIF® Endo–the only system designed specifically for endoscopic fusion. Leveraging the existing OptiLIF portfolio, spine endoscopy can now be seamlessly integrated without additional steps to your workflow.

Robotic Navigation: 2 Applications, 1 System
Location: Booth 1620
Sponsored by: Globus Medical

This workshop focuses on the comprehensive, multifunctional use of the ExcelsiusGPS® robotic navigation platform for spine and cranial applications. Attendees will have a better understanding of procedural applications for both spine and stereotactic cranial procedures. The surgeon panel will discuss procedural workflows and benefits of robotic navigation for these types of surgeries.

Mastering Complexity in Spinal Fusions: An Evidence-Based Review of the Bone Graft Landscape
Location: Booth 1820
Faculty: MIchael Steinmetz
Sponsored by: Cerapedics

This session will provide attendees with an overview of the common classes of bone graft products popular today, providing insight into the regulatory approval pathways and examining the efficacy, safety and other key characteristics of each product and how this information should impact surgeon decision making.
