Designed exclusively for spine surgeons seeking active discussions concerning the care and management of patients suffering from degenerative and traumatic conditions of the spine.

This annual two day course will focus on new innovations in spinal instrumentation and surgical approaches for various spinal diseases and traumatic injuries, including cutting edge technology (first in its class) and unique surgical procedures.

Renowned spinal care specialists will discuss and debate the complication rates and outcomes of various novel instruments and surgical techniques, as experienced in their own practices.  In addition, actual surgical cases will be presented by faculty that will demonstrate the surgical decision-making process for appropriate management of spinal disease to help improve patient outcomes.
