Dear Colleagues

„NeuroSpine“ – this is the name of a new forum that will be introduced in March 2011 as an advanced training course by the Swiss Society of Neurosurgery SSN. The first course is entitled „A new dynamic view at the treatment of spine disorders“, with an emphasis on degenerative spinal diseases. We are glad to invite you to this workshop, which will be held at the Kursaal in Bern on March 17, 2011.

The aim of this workshop is to build up and to deepen the relationship between neurosurgeons, other specialists and practitioners who are involved every day in the treatment of patients with acute and chronic states of spinal degenerative diseases. Our goal is to critically discuss the indications for surgical treatment and when to choose a classical or a novel surgical technique, highlighting innovative instrumentation devices.

The scientific committee of the course spares no effort to organize an attractive program which ought to catch the attention of the invited practitioners and specialists alike. We are convinced that the presentations will be inspiring, fostering interesting debates and discussions.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Bern in March 2011.

Sincerely yours,

Professor Adrian Merlo
MD President SSN
