Spine Boot Camp, Chennai, November 2017

India’s FIRST ever SPINE BOOT CAMP was conducted in MGM resorts, Chennai, Tamil Nadu on 11 & 12 November 2017. Boot camp is a regimented military style training, which has been translated to different areas of skills training. The methodology involves transfer of information, experience and wisdom from mentors to those seeking the unknown. The boot camp will add value by filling in the “gaps” that may exist in knowledge that is not always attained during meetings, conferences, CME programs and cadaver or live surgery courses. This wealth of information has been put together by a group of experts, along with people in the Industry to enhance skills with precision and therefore to achieve improved knowledge.
