Meeting Description

This hands-on course will provide an opportunity for participants to expand their knowledge and improve their skills through training and discussions with leading spinal deformity surgeons from throughout North America. Registration will be limited to ensure access to faculty, small-group interaction for better learning, and opportunities for hands-on work. Ten hours of the course will be devoted to lab work, with a strong faculty-to-learner ratio. Topics and lab sessions will cover all areas of the spine and a variety of conditions and techniques. The intimate learning theme will begin on Thursday evening with small group “Fireside Chats” with faculty and will proceed to presentations, video demonstrations and lab rotations on Friday and Saturday.

  • Identify appropriate options for cervical and adult deformity reconstruction
