Neurosurgery CANES LAB

The Departments of Neurosurgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine offer a fully functional microsurgical training laboratory for residents, fellows and physicians. The Lab offers the opportunity to gain advanced training in microsurgery and endoscopic techniques in the areas of otology, rhinology, laryngology, microvascular surgery, skull base surgery, cranial surgery and spine surgery.

The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art operating microscopes, surgical endoscopes, electro-drill equipment, microsurgical instruments, as well as the latest in 2-D and 3-D video recording technology. Advanced video technology is available for video streaming of live surgery to the laboratory and adjacent conference room. Advanced microsurgical techniques and approaches in fresh and preserved cadaveric tissue are taught in a comfortable and safe working space. The 370 square feet laboratory has 13 surgical stations with additional space for cadaveric tissue preparation and storage. The laboratory area can be expanded to the adjacent wet surgical laboratory for additional working space and/or animal live surgery. A flexible conference room that sits 30 to 40 attendants, ample lounge area, restrooms and lockers are also available. The laboratory complies with all required environmental and safety regulations.

The CANES lab is available for continuing medical education courses, visiting fellows and surgeons
from across the world, and for providing a venue to the industry for demonstration of new surgical instrumentation technology. Our team of faculty surgeons, surgical technicians and administrators have ample experience in the organization and teaching of educational and in-service events.

We are happy to announce our inaugural International Course for Latin American Neurosurgeons. In partnership with the FLANC, we designed an intensive 2-week course with our World-renowned Neurosurgeons. This is the result of the feed- back provided by many Latin American colleagues who have visited our Department over the last 20 years. In addition, the timing for this course is right, as we have just completed con- struction of a brand new cadaveric dissection lab, the C.A.N.E.S. Lab. Our objective is to provide an enriching experi- ence in a format suitable for the busy schedule of modern neu- rosurgery. For this course, we will focus on Cranial Neurosur- gery. Future courses will cover Spine and other subspecialties. We endorse the FLANC’s motto and it is indeed our goal to “eliminate the frontiers of knowledge, and share our experience with the world.”
In a city with a unique Latin American influence, we proudly host this international course, and we hope to see you soon.
