Responding to the COVID-19 Crisis, Ten Week Web-Based Program to Offer Free Educational Talks While "Social Distancing" Remains Imperative

SAN CARLOS, Calif., March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ZAP Surgical Systems, Inc. today announced a program offering web-based educational talks focused on stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and its related applications. With numerous recently postponed scientific meetings resulting from the COVID-19 crisis (e.g. The Radiosurgery Society, AANS, etc.), combined with the need for "social distancing", all of the program's content will be delivered via webinar and at no cost.

Stereotactic radiosurgery is a well-studied and effective treatment for many brain cancers including primary and metastatic brain tumors. Considered an alternative to surgery for select indications, SRS is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that often provides equivalent outcomes, yet no surgical incision, and little to no recovery period.

The webinar series includes an esteemed panel of experts discussing a myriad of topics relevant to the advancement of radiosurgery. Select presentations from this program include the following:

  • Tue, April 7, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "Isocentric vs. Non-Isocentric SRS for Trigeminal Neuralgia", presented by Leo Romanelli MD, Neurosurgeon, CDI Milan, and Mike Schulder MD, Neurosurgeon, North Shore University Hospital.
  • Thu, April 16, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "SRS for Brain Mets – How Big is Too Big? How Many is Too Many?", presented by Scott Soltys, Radiation Oncologist, Stanford University, and Aizik Wolf MD, Neurosurgeon, Miami Neuroscience Center.
  • Thu, April 23, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "SRS vs. Surgery for Vestibular Schwannoma", presented by Alex Muacevic MD, Neurosurgeon, University of Munich, and Michael McDermott MD, Neurosurgeon, Miami Neuroscience Institute.
  • Wed, May 6, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "Brain Mets: Dispelling Myths and Focusing on Fact", presented by Jason Sheehan MD, Neurosurgeon, University of Virginia.
  • Thu, May 14, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "Vault-Free Radiosurgery Beam Dosimetry and Plan Quality Analysis", presented by Steve Sorensen PhD, Medical Physicist, Barrow Neurological Institute.
  • Wed, May 20, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "Understanding SRS Reimbursement Trends: Past, Present and Future", presented by James Hugh, SVP, American Medical Accounting and Consulting (AMAC).
  • Thu, June 11, 11:00am-11:30am EDT. "Radiosurgery and Intractable Pain", presented by Eduardo Lovo MD, Neurosurgeon, International Cancer Center - El Salvador.
