Quick access
Spine trauma is still quite endemic; appropriate management can reduce the morbidity and even the mortality. The management of spine trauma has driven the design of spinal instrumentation. Advances in metallurgy, minimal invasiveness and navigation make this an exciting and constantly evolving field. There are several challenges to face and hopefully overcome! Polytrauma, elderly trauma and metabolic bone conditions make multidisciplinary team working mandatory.

We hope to make this course educational, challenging and exciting for the participants and faculty alike by promoting excellent interaction between delegates and faculty and also between members of the faculty.

This educational event, taught in a modular format, will comprise of lectures, case-based discussions and hands-on practical exercises with ample time for debates between faculty and participants.
