Webinar Series

Dr. Wakenda Tyler, and the MSTS Education Committee, will present the next webinar, "A Cup of Coffee and a Computer - Performing Complex Tumor Resections and Reconstructions with Advanced Technologies" on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, beginning at 7:30 pm Central Time.  Webinar presenters are Drs. Santiago Lozano-Calderon, Matthew Colman, Jose Ignacio Albergo, Alex Mericli and Karthik Tappa, with Dr. Justin Bird serving as the Moderator. 

This webinar will focus on recent advances in technology that enable more precise orthopaedic tumor resections and complex reconstructions.  A world-class panel of clinical technologists will share their experiences using stereotactic navigation, virtual/augmented realty, 3D anatomical models, cutting guides and custom implants.  Participants will learn the nuts and bolts of the computer assisted surgery process, including what a STL file is and how it can be used in various ways to create useful tools to achieve successful surgeries.  Through an interactive Q&A, we will explore if and how computer-assisted surgical planning makes a difference.   At the end of this webinar, participants should have a basic understanding of how to use CAD/CAM to plan and execute a complex surgery. 

Register today to attend this complimentary webinar presented by the MSTS Educaiton Committee.
