This program will be presented both in-person and online
This program will be available in the meeting's On Demand product.
J. D. Bartleson, MD, FAAN
General Neurology
Participants will know how to recognize clinically important neck and upper limb pain and neurologic symptoms and signs indicating significant cervical spine disease. Attendees will learn when to order diagnostic tests and which tests to order for patients with cervical spinal cord and/or cervical spinal nerve impingement. Because the natural history of many spondyloti conditions is benign, in some situations no testing may be needed. Cervical spine stenosis is very common and may not be the cause of the paitent's myelopathy. Therfore, the differential diagnosis of myelopathies will be reviewed. The management of these patients will be discussed. Non-operative treatment will be emphasized. Indications for surgery and surgical treatment options will be presented.
