Welcome to the AOSpine Davos Courses 2019

WElcome to The AOSPine Davos Courses 2019!

Dear colleagues

following last year's great success, the courses are again focusing on minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) but also with a complex cervical problems course.

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


Participants will have the opportunity to choose from four courses:

Course 1: Basic Endoscopy

Course 2: Advanced Endoscopy

Course 3: Micro-decompression and Percutaneous Screw Fixation

Course 4: Advanced Level Complex Cervical Spine Surgery

(In Course 1, 3 and 4 the hands-on training of these courses will be held on life-like simulators).

(In Course 2: The first two days of the hands-on training will be staged on life-like simulators. The third day of the training will be staged on cadavers).

Apart from the hands-on sessions, participants will get the opportunity to engage in case discussions as well as in the always very popular “the good, the bad, the ugly—a case that taught me a lesson” panel discussions in a fireside-talk-like environment.

We look forward to seeing you in Davos from 8-11 December!

Best wishes
