The Current Concepts in Spine Deformity course is an international forum for the realization of the Scoliosis Research Society’s mission and goals, the improvement of patient care for those with spinal deformities. Topics of the meeting include foundational knowledge of spine and spinal deformity, basics and treatments of a variety of pathologies including adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, early onset deformity, adult spinal deformity, spondylolisthesis, cervical deformity, and deformity related to Parkinson’s disease. With the cultural context of an increasing elderly population, this course will also include a spotlight on deformity related to osteoporotic vertebral fractures. Each session includes case-based discussions with the goal of better understanding treatments for each pathology. Learners will be able to dive deeper into discussion in small groups with a low attendee to faculty ratio regarding AIS and ASD.
Residents, fellows, orthopaedic and neurosurgeons who have an interest and are involved in spinal deformity management and treatment.
Official name badges will be required for admission to all sessions. All Current Concepts in Spine Deformity attendees receive a name badge with their registration materials. Name badges should be worn at all time inside the meeting space, as badges will be used to control access to sessions and activities. Attendees are cautioned against wearing their name badges while away from the venue, as badges draw unwanted attention to your status as visitors to the city.
Business casual (polo or dress shirts, sports coats) is appropriate for meeting sessions and for all Current Concepts in Spine Deformity sessions; ties are not required.
The Current Concepts in Spine Deformity will be presented in English.
