Cadaver Lab

People in scrubs standing around a blurred out cadaver,

In our residents’ first cranial anatomy lab of the year, Dr. Caron lectured on the frontal orbital zygomatic approach to craniotomy. This skull base surgical technique provides access to many of the tumors and vascular lesions neurosurgeons see on a regular basis. Following the lecture, the residents went to the cadaver lab, sponsored by Integra Lifesciences, to practice this challenging technique. The cadaver lab allows the residents a safe environment to hone techniques before performing them on live patients in the operating room.
