Welcome to the AOSpine Davos Courses 2018

WElcome to The AOSPine Davos Courses 2018!

Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the 2018 Davos Courses, which are focusing entirely on minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS).

Participants of all levels of practice will have the opportunity to improve their use of the microscope, the endoscope and work on their percutaneous fixation skills. All three courses include case discussions and hands-on sessions on a life-like simulator as well as online course preparations and provide an outstanding occasion to train under the supervision of world-renowned MISS experts.


The following modules are offered:

Course 1: Microdecompression and endoscopy

Course 2: Endoscopy and percutaneous fixation

Course 3: Percutaneous fixation and microdecompression

With the small group training and focus on hand's on training, this will be an outstanding opportunity to train skills with world renowned MISS experts.

Also, make sure you don’t miss “the good, the bad, the ugly—a case that taught me a lesson” discussions in the afternoon, which is a great chance to benefit from the experiences of others and to discuss best practices with your peers.

Our renowned international faculty will not only share their extensive knowledge and skills with you but also make sure that you get the best learning experience possible.

As always during the Davos Courses, you will have plenty of time for discussions and networking with spine experts from all over the world.

I hope you will enjoy this outstanding learning experience and wish you a wonderful time in Davos.
