Welcome at the Utrecht Spine Course 2019 on Spinal Trauma

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend this upcoming spine course in Utrecht. In this course we will present our philosophy on the treatment of spinal trauma in an multidisciplinary and interactive way. Classifications, treatment options and tips and tricks in open and percutaneous surgery from C- spine down to the pelvis are presented by our experienced faculty.

Next to regular lectures concerning classification and treatment options in spinal trauma, the teamwork in multidisciplinary group which is needed to treat a polytrauma patient with a spinal fracture will be discussed by experts in the field of neurosurgery, trauma surgery and rehabilitation medicine.  In the programme there is ample time for discussion, case presentations and interaction with the faculty.

For a limited group, a cadaver lab with hands on training of different techniques is provided on Saturday.
