The Hands-on Course “Advanced thoraco-lumbar spine” happened at the SFITS on August 24-25th 2022 with the support of Swiss Society of Spinal Surgery (SGS). It was addressed to experienced neurosurgical and orthopaedical residents (4th to 6th YOT) interested in spine surgery, with focused talks on the advanced approaches to the thoraco-lumbar spine and a two-day hands-on session in the top-quality level wet-lab in Geneva.
The course took place before the SGS summit in the Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, in Geneva.
The course created a great synergy between the faculty and the participants. It was set in the right conditions for the participants to train and practice different procedures under the supervision of expert faculties, in a safe environment.
