Challenges in the management of spinal trauma have produced some of the major breakthroughs in spine care. This course will address different topics in spinal trauma, such as the management of polytraumatized patients, the emerging role of minimally invasive spine surgery, the  treatment of patients with impaired bone structure, and the management of spinal injuries affecting the elderly. New perspectives on spinal cord injury treatment and outcomes measures offer new learning insights for even the experienced surgeon. This educational event, taught in a  modular format, offers you a challenging learning experience with interactive sessions facilitated by faculty teaching in their field of expertise. The course comprises evidence-based lectures, practical exercises, panel discussions and debates and will provide ample time for discussion.
