Sonntag Spine Symposium
3rd Annual Sonntag Spine Symposium
Who Should Attend
Neurological and orthopedic spine surgeons in training and in practice.
Course Learning Objectives
The Sonntag Spine Symposium, held annually, is dedicated to providing education on the latest and innovative technologies in minimally invasive spine surgery.
The primary objective of this event is to impart knowledge and training to the upcoming generation of neurosurgeons. Attendees at the symposium will have the chance to deeply engage in the realm of minimally invasive spine surgery. Alongside case presentations, the course faculty will delve into topics such as adult spinal deformity, single position surgery, and technology. This setting not only facilitates learning new techniques but also fosters a mutually beneficial bidirectional educational exchange among surgeons, fellows, and residents.
