Back Pain and Sciatica- Contemporary Management
Dr Mohammed Awad, Neurosurgeon and Spinal Surgeon
Back pain and sciatica are best treated in an integrated, team-based fashion. This seminar brings together the latest evidence and treatment options in 2019. Recognition of common and sinister causes of back pain, understanding the role of diagnostic blocks and surgery, appreciation of the latest surgical advances (including robotic spinal surgery and patient-specific implants), and identification of important post-operative complications after discharge are the key elements of this interactive presentation.
Neck Pain, Brachialgia and Cervical Spine Surgery in 2019
Dr Hazem Akil, Neurosurgeon and Spinal Surgeon
Cervical spine pathology increases with age, and can cause debilitating neck pain, arm pain and headaches. Keyhole surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and artificial disc replacement are employed increasingly. What is their role? Do they work? Which patients may be suitable? Sinister causes of neck pain, concentrating on their early recognition and investigation, will be discussed. The post-operative management of patients after discharge will also be explored.
