Dr. Peter Angevine from the Spine Center was among the neurosurgeons from Columbia’s Department of Neurosurgery in New Orleans last month to present at the 81st Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).
He was Co-Director of a Hands-On Course for Neurosurgeons titled, Techniques for Adult Spinal Deformity Surgery. Here students were instructed on the evaluation and treatment planning for common spinal deformities in adults such as degenerative lumbar scoliosis and thoracic kyphosis. The hands-on portion of the program included specific techniques for positioning, rod and screw placement.
Dr. Angevine was also a Panelist at three symposia during the meeting.
The first was on the Principles and Techniques of Deformity Correction in Adolescents and Young Adults. See him in the photo at right with course Moderator, David W. Pincus, MD, PhD, Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the University of Florida and graduate of Columbia’s Neurosurgical Residency Program.
The second symposium was on the Management of Adult Scoliosis where special emphasis was placed on the association of spinal deformities with conditions commonly treated by neurosurgeons.
Finally, Dr. Angevine was Panelist at a Dinner Symposium on Biologics and Spine Fusion, where specialists presented cases for audience discussion on current techniques, outcomes and complications.
