Microsurgical, minimally invasive techniques and stereotactic navigation are gaining increasing importance in spinal surgery. Over the past years a number of new surgical techniques and approaches have been developed that will change our surgical practice in the future. Therefore, by combining didactic lectures and case discussions with hands-on cadaveric exercises, this course offers a unique opportunity to develop technical skills and training to all surgeons who wish to be involved in minimally invasive spinal care.

This course does not provide credentials for the exercise of medicine for those without appropriate training, recognition and registered at the "Ordem dos Médicos" or international equivalent institutions.​
