CSRS Video Archive

     The CSRS Video Archive is a repository of lectures, debates and symposia presented at an Annual Meeting, Instructional Course Lecture, and Hands-On Surgical Techniques Course, from 2020 forward. The videos can be searched in a variety of ways, such as by words in the title, keywords, speaker, and year of presentation. This archive will function, in essence, as a video textbook of cervical spine surgery, but - unlike a traditional textbook - one that is continually updated and expanded from CSRS, the most authoritative organization on cervical spine research and education.
