The 3rd Annual Spinal Navigation, Emerging Technologies, & Systems Integration Course is an advanced training course held for orthopaedic and neurosurgeons who treat spinal conditions. Nationally recognized speakers will focus on provocative topics and in-depth debates regarding spinal navigation and robotics application in spine surgery. They will also provide hands-on workshops in state-of-the-art lab facilities. The goal is to gain knowledge and experience of the new modalities in spine surgery, addressing both the guidelines and controversies of the field, as well as attaining hands-on exposure and training in the cadaver lab.
