The future of neurosurgery is in minimally invasive techniques. This one-day course, directed by Dr. Theodore Schwartz and Dr. Mark Souweidane, is a comprehensive overview of the emerging techniques and technologies of minimally invasive cranial neurosurgery, using didactic sessions. At the completion of this course, participants should be well equipped to start utilizing these approaches in their own practices. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss difficult cases with the faculty during panel discussions


This CME course is intended for national and international practicing neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists, fellows, and residents in training. Nurses, NPs, and PAs are also welcome.


By the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the indications and technical steps required to perform tubebased surgery for intraparenchyal brain tumors and hematomas
  • Perform keyhole microsurgery of the anterior and posterior fossa 
  • Achieve a working knowledge of robotic stereotactic placement of LITT and catheter-based therapy and their indications
  • Develop a greater expertise of the complex skull base anatomy and indications for expanded endoscopic skull base approaches


Weill Cornell Medical College is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Weill Cornell Medical College designates this live activity for a maximum of 9.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
