Microsurgical and minimally invasive techniques have gained increased importance in spinal surgery in the last years. They have become the gold standard in the treatment of a variety of pathologies of the spine and represent the ongoing evolution of surgical techniques towards more tissue-sparing approaches.
The more sophisticated a technique, the more important training and education becomes. Our past international microsurgical wet labs, a joint venture of Schön-Klinik Munich-Harlaching and the Department of Anatomy of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, were great successes and have encouraged us to proceed with this teaching concept.
We proudly announce the 25th Course on Spinal Advanced Microsurgery 2019, a hands-on cadaver course on Posterior Approaches to the Cervical Spine. It would be a pleasure for us, the faculty and the organisers, to welcome you in Munich from October 10–11, 2019!
