 Welcome Message

Dear Distinguished Colleagues,

We are pleased to present you with an extraordinary scoliosis event of intensive learning and development of innovative teaching modules for spine deformity surgeon training.

First class faculty from Egypt and overseas countries is gathered to share ideas and thoughts and to learn from each other. The enhancement of knowledge, skill and attitude are the 3 elements of successful surgical training and this would be the goal of our course. Reading materials are carefully selected to provide you with a broad overview of the spine deformity.

The skills development component is addressed by participating in pre-operative planning and assisting a consecutive series of well selected deformity cases.During this week there will be close interaction between the faculty and participants to develop the right attitude in dealing with deformity patients and the entire surgical team.

Welcome to the Egyptian scoliosis Course!
