Optimal treatment of thoracolumbar burst fractures is extremely variable. Despite reliable classification systems, nonoperative versus operative and surgical approaches to these injuries are widely debated. This course describes classifications, factors that affect treatment, nonoperative principles and various surgical techniques to these injuries. Unique to this course is the incorporation of geriatric fracture care and fractures in the pathologic bone. The faculty consists of spine traumatologists who are academic faculty dedicated to state of the art fracture care. Participants will learn through didactic lectures, case presentations and hands-on surgical techniques in the lab.

What you will learn :
• Summarize present accepted thoracolumbar classification system
• Differentiate between non-operative and operative injuries
• Apply learned surgical techniques to clinical practice

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
