2022 Bass Symposium in Neurosurgical Innovations: Topics in Pediatric Neurosurgery (RP2203E)

Dallas, TX US
March 5, 2022

In a time of constant and ever-growing attempts to tailor specific treatments for individual patients, pediatric neurosurgery represents a frontier field. Research in molecular biology and genetics has been shedding new light on the pathophysiological mechanisms at the basis of pediatric neurosurgical diseases. Such novel comprehension can prospectively lead to better risk stratification and intervention choices in situations where not only the kind of disease, but also the phase of growth of the individual child has to be taken into consideration. Knowing what to do and when to do it in cases of pediatric oncological, dysmorphogenetic, and hydrocephalic pathologies is our challenge; anticipating long-term neuropsychological outcomes in terms of global functionality is our ideal purpose.

The 2022 Bass Neurosurgery Symposium will provide pediatricians, neurosurgeons, nurses and healthcare teams an update on clinical and research advancements, particularly noting current and emerging state-of-the art innovations related to pediatric neurosurgery. After attending this Symposium, we expect that all participants will have enhanced knowledge regarding these innovations to meet the challenges faced in pediatric neurosurgery today, and be able to apply this knowledge to their clinical practice.

The 2022 Bass Neurosurgery Symposium consists of two events:

  • Friday, March 4, 2022 - Cocktail Reception, Dinner, and Keynote Address
    • 6:30 to 9:00pm - ND Building, 14th Floor Dining
      • Please email  RSVP@UTSouthwestern.edu  to make your reservation to attend this event (cost is included with registration fee) 
  • Saturday, March 5, 2022 - CME Symposium and Panel Discussion
    • 8:00am to 3:00pm - NG Building, T. Boone Pickens Auditorium

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this CME activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the major advances made in genomic approaches and neuroimaging techniques, as well as advanced surgical options to better diagnose, evaluate, and manage epilepsy in children.
  • Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using three-dimensional technology in pediatric craniofacial surgery.
  • Interpret the risks and benefits of using stereotactic radiotherapy's targeted and precise dosing delivery for treating pediatric brain tumors.
  • Discuss the unique manifestations of pediatric cerebrovascular disorders and recent advances to utilize for early detection and treatment.
  • Assess the benefits and discuss the use of non-invasive prenatal risk tolls for monitoring prenatal and early postnatal human brain development.
  • Define innovations in gene therapy that significantly impact effective treatment of pediatric brain disorders.
  • Explain the benefits of incorporating innovative problem solving and design thinking for healthcare teams as they seek to improve patient care and overall organization.
