Following the great success last year, AO Spine’s educational offering at the AO Davos Courses 2019 will again focus on MISS. This year, an advanced-level course on complex cervical problems has been added to the program.

Over three days, participants will experience expert-level teaching on micro-decompression, endoscopy, percutaneous fixation, and complex cervical spine surgery, allowing them to improve their skills and knowledge on the microscope, the exoscope, on navigation and radiation, the endoscope, and complex cervical solutions.

On December 8 in the morning, participants will be able to join a half day seminar on the topic of “Non-technical surgical skills” with representatives from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

On December 9, there will be two consecutive seminars offered in the morning; one is on the topic of “optimizing elderly patients for spine surgery” from the Fragility Fracture Network, the other on “the future of simulation in spine education” by Bryan Ashman.
