Operative Spine Forum 2016

The Operative Spine Forum 2016 was conducted on May 25th and 26th May, 2016 at Nanavati Hospital. The response we got from delegate was overwhelming as more than 200 consulting orthopedics had registered for the event from all over the country! Last year’s faculty included the best and brightest spine surgeons from Mumbai as well as Dr. Neel Anand from Ceders Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles, California.
Over the two days, these expert surgeons operated on six very complicated cases with techniques ranging from minimally invasive spinal deformity correction to endoscopic lumbar discectomy. We got a highly positive feedback from all the delegates and hope to live up to our reputation this year.
