Hong Kong: On October 28-30, 2016, SRS will also be organising a Hands-On Tissue Training Course (cadaver course) with the Asia Pacific Spine Society.

Our committee is working hard to disseminate the knowledge of spinal deformity all around the world and we are hoping to develop new projects and improve our global educational activities for our Society’s mission to foster optimal care for spinal deformity patients globally.
