The goals of this program are to improve techniques for scapholunate repair and tendon transfer among patients with tetraplegia; review the surgical approach to atlantoaxial instability in the pediatric population; and understand advances in spinal surgery. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Review the current treatment options for injury to the scapholunate ligament.
2. Describe appropriate candidates for tendon transfer surgery among patients with tetraplegia.
3. Discuss the goals and treatment options for tendon transfer surgery.
4. List the advantages of condylar screw placement for the treatment of atlantoaxial instability in the pediatric population.
5. Summarize current evidence in favor of image-guided navigation systems and robotic involvement for spinal surgery.

The original programs were presented by Mark S. Cohen, MD, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Director, Hand Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL, Michael S. Bednar, MD, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Chief, Division of Hand Surgery, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL, Libby Kosnik Infinger, MD, Neurosurgery Resident, University of South Carolina, Charleston, and Isador Lieberman, MD, Director, Scoliosis and Spine Tumor Center, Texas Back Institute, Plano.
