Dr. Sean Lavine, Dr. Michael Sisti, and Dr. E. Sander Connolly are back from a rather unique medical conference in North Carolina last week, The Battle at Pinehust.

The meeting er… battle, officially called Cerebrovascular and Skull Base Course – Battle at Pinehust, was held over the course of four days at the Endosurgery Center at Duke University School of Medicine. Their overview is given below:

The Battle at Pinehurst is a gloves-off educational program that will feature British parliamentary-style debating techniques to present key aspects of diseases involving the cerebrovascular system and skull base. The speakers and moderators have been instructed to leave the show-and-tell talks behind. Instead, the speakers will bring their debating skills and data to support their argument. Duke Endosurgery Center

Dr. Lavine says, “The meeting had a refreshing style that allowed for an open and honest discussion of our opinions about controversial topics based on our clinical experience and the medical literature.”
