EUROSPINE

Spring Specialty Meeting 2019

2–3 May, Frankfurt, Germany

Report

The 5th edition of a EUROSPINE Spring Specialty Meeting took place from 2–3 May 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany, and was organised in partnership with the German Spine Society (DWG), AOSpine and Scoliosis Research Society (SRS).

174 participants from 37 countries attended the meeting on “Highly Complex Spine Surgery”. The Organising Committee, represented by the course chairs Frank Kandziora, Thomas Blattert and Bernhard Meyer brought worldwide recognised experts together that shared their ‘tips and tricks’ for highly complex spinal surgery, which made this once-only masterclass a unique educational opportunity in the field. Frank Kandziora, EUROSPINE Past President, is happy that “our 32 invited speakers kept everyone at the edge of their seats with a high-quality programme”. Among others, sessions were dedicated to spinal deformities in children and adults, spinal tumours, juxta-dural pathologies and spine trauma. Discussions were continued late into the night at the Congress Evening in a typically Hessian atmosphere.

EUROSPINE is Europe’s largest spine society with a constantly growing number of members and noted for its Annual General Meeting always taking place in fall. With the Spring Specialty Meeting, EUROSPINE has responded to increasing demand for more targeted education in selected sub-specialties to fulfil its central claim: to be the driving force and the primary and preferred partner in Europe for all spinal care issues. The date for the next edition of a Spring Specialty Meeting has been set for 30 April – 1 May and will take place again in Frankfurt, Germany.
