We are delighted to announce The Degenerative Spine: Anatomy, Approaches and Implant Selection course which will attract fellows, registrars and SHOs with an interest in orthopaedic and neuro spinal surgery.

A wide variety of topics relating to the degenerate spine will be discussed through lectures, workshops and MDT style case studies. This course provides delegates with extensive teaching on the anatomy and approaches to the all areas of the spine. With a wealth of experience among the faculty, delegates will be given comprehensive lectures covering the anatomy, pathologies and approaches of the degenerative spine followed by in-depth discussions and hands-on practical workshop sessions into the choices, rationale and placement of spinal implants. The Degenerative Spine: Anatomy, Approaches and Implant Selection course will give delegates an opportunity to engage in discussions around complex cases, patient treatment options and MDT style case examples with world-class faculty.

We are certain that the social opportunities in London and the highly educational content of the course will make your experience unforgettable and truly worthwhile.
