Meeting to focus on highly complex spine surgery

The 5th edition of the EUROSPINE Spring Specialty Meeting takes place from 2-3 May 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany

Course chairs Thomas Blattert (Schwarzach, Germany), Bernhard Meyer (Munich, Germany) and Frank Kandziora (Frankfurt, Germany), invite delegates to EUROSPINE’s Spring Specialty Meeting 2019, dedicated to one single topic in depth. The defining features of the meeting are its small size and intimate setting, which allow for maximum concentration, deep exploration and sustainable learning effects.

The scientific programme is aimed at experienced spine surgeons who wish to develop their skills further.

The meeting will be organised in cooperation with the German Spine Society (DWG), as well as international spine societies AOSpine and the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS). The Organising Committee, represented by the course chairs Frank Kandziora, Thomas Blattert and Bernhard Meyer, assure prospective delegates that they will be “bringing worldwide recognised experts together that will share their ‘tips and tricks’ for highly complex spinal surgery”, making this once-only masterclass a unique educational opportunity in the field. Among others, there will be sessions dedicated to spinal deformities in children and adults, spinal tumours, juxta-dural pathologies and spine trauma. Several hundred participants from many countries are expected to gather with their colleagues to exchange knowledge, skills and the latest advances in research and clinical findings in order to improve patients’ treatment and ensure the best possible spine care.

EUROSPINE is Europe’s largest spine society with a constantly growing number of members and noted for its Annual General Meeting always taking place in autumn. With the Spring Specialty Meeting, EUROSPINE has responded to increasing demand for more targeted education in selected sub-specialties to fulfil its central claim: to be the driving force and the primary and preferred partner in Europe for all spinal care issues. 

The hosting city of Frankfurt is known as an international business hub and gateway to central Germany. It offers excellent flight and rail access to all those planning to attend the EUROSPINE Spring Specialty Meeting 2019. In addition, the city boasts numerous cultural attractions such as museums and sites of ancient history. A varied social programme will showcase the best the destination has to offer and provide attendees with a chance to establish new contacts and deepening existing ones. 

The course chairs are really excited and look forward to sharing two exciting days with delegates and hope that everyone will enjoy networking and learning from the best in spine.
