19th International Symposium «Minimal invasive and instrumented surgery of the spine»

Dear colleagues! We invite you to attend 19 Minimal Invasive Spinal Surgery Symposium. Successful development of the spinal surgery in Ukraine during recent years is the result of dedicated work and activity of ISMISS Members. Geography and number of clinical centers where modern spinal surgeries are used increase
all the time. Educational centers for spinal surgery are founded at spinal surgery and neurosurgery institutions.

This is the merit of world famous ISMISS Members and experts from different countries of the world such as USA, Switzerland, Germany, South Korea, Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, Armenia etc. who continuously participate at our Symposium presenting lectures and workshops, completing scientific programs.
