Ten faculty members from Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore and Cochin who are experts in minimally invasive spine surgeries conducted the course. 5 live surgeries were performed during the course through interactive audio visual sessions. Lectures and case discussions were also a part of the program.

The course was supported and endorsed by the Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeons of India (MISSI). We also have 10 CME credit points for this activity from the Dr. MGR University, Chennai, which is the maximum granted for this type of activity. About 50 orthopedic and spine surgeons from different parts of the Country attended and it was a huge success.

We are pleased to welcome you to the first Kauvery - Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Course in Chennai. The course focuses on introducing the basic concepts of minimally invasive spine surgery, discusses advances in MIS techniques and understand the indications to aspiring Orthopedic and Neurosurgeons with an interest in Minimally Invasive spine surgery. Selected national faculty who are leaders in MISS would enrich the course. We request your participation to make this an useful and enjoyable meeting.
