“With AO Spine we had the idea to put together courses to teach surgeons to learn how to take care of really sick patients using effective minimally invasive techniques and technology. This material will help you to prepare yourself as chairperson for the course or do self-study for your development.”

Roger Härtl, Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) Task Force Leader
