Multidisciplinary Spine Conference
Versorium spine symposium is a unique multi-disciplinary scientific conference and exhibition, held across one full day which will bring together experts in spinal conditions and treatment from across all care disciplines and around the world to expand knowledge, collaboration and promote networking.
The conference focus is a better understanding of spine conditions and the role of each discipline. In addition to a focus on independent practice setup/development, the day will also include a breakout session on intraoperative surgical management and spine implants.
The Royal College of Surgeons of England has awarded up to 6 CPD points.
The event will be held annually.
We are developing a programme on a wide range of topics related to spinal care and independent practice development, with keynotes, updates and paper sessions from both UK and International Faculty.
The event also provides a unique opportunity to meet with a range of healthcare professionals in the spinal community.
