A training focused on spine surgery between Italia and Switzerland, this is the international course that Prof. Enrico Tessitore & Dr. Claudio Schonauer imagined. The SFITS had the pleasure to be part of the event. The most advanced technologies in the field of spinal surgery, from robotics to exoscopes to modern spinal implants, were available during the hands-on workshops. Endorsed by the Swiss Society of Neurosurgery (SSNS) and the Italian Society of Neurosurgery (SINCH), the course was addressed to advanced residents in Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Surgery.
17 participants had the chance to take part of this very first edition and left enthusiastic.
The participants started the training on the 07.09.2021 at the Centre of Biotecnologies at AORN Cardarelli Hospitals in Naples. The focus was on the thoraco-lumbar spine and iliac fixation.
At the SFITS, they covered the occipito-cervical pathologies, including both arthroplasty and fusion procedures.
After a long period of interruption related to COVID pandemics, we are extremely happy to have well renowned faculty from Italy and Switzerland delivering face-to-face lectures and discussing challenging cases with the participants in very interactive sessions.
