courses are sponsored by the American College of Physicians
& Surgeons, founded by Dr. Merrill W. Reuter. In general,
courses consist of live
surgery, didactic sessions, hands-on workshops, multi-disciplinary symposium
and course syllabus. All
attendees will gain sufficient exposure to
the state of the art procedures in minimally invasive spine care which will improve the
opportunities for their patients.
courses are open to all physicians and surgeons who practice spine-related
medicine such as orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists
and pain management/anesthesiologists. Fellows, Residents and Allied
Health Professionals in these disciplines are also encouraged to attend.
The Minimally Invasive Spine Update courses
have been offered ten times since 1999. Our
last course was the AAMISMS/MISU China 2007 course in
Beijing and Shanghai, China, March 30-April7, 2007.
The course began with live surgery in California.
