Take your rhinology skills to the next level! Endoscopic surgery of the skull base and pituitary have undergone significant advances. Expanded techniques offer access to a variety of lesions of the skull base. Pituitary surgery is the foundation of endoscopic skull base where otolaryngologists learn to work as a team with neurosurgeons and learn basic techniques such as closure of csf leaks and exposure of the pituitary gland. Practical tips learned from over a decade of experience will be covered, such as post-operative care, tumor outcomes, and minimizing complications.
Course features optional afternoon hands-on surgical cadaver lab at UCSF's new cutting edge surgical training facility! Excellent instructor to learner ratio. Everyone will get plenty of time practicing hands-on skull base surgical procedures with image guidance.

Out of town participants are welcome to stay at the Palace hotel in downtown San Francisco. Shuttle transportation will be provided from the Palace Hotel to the conference site.
