The III World Congress of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery and Techniques took place in August 2012 in Brazil. A success on all counts, the Congress brought together over 700 delegates and 2000 participants from 38 countries for three days of hard work and intense interaction, for the purpose of updating and disseminating knowledge on new approaches in the treatment of spine diseases.
A lively and comprehensive scientific programme that included more than 200 lectures and 80 new research papers offered world leaders and innovators in the field a unique platform to introduce and discuss recent developments in minimally invasive surgery of the spine.
As importantly, it also gave participants the opportunity to address the challenges and obstacles involved in implementing these developments in clinical practice.
Disseminating these clinical and scientific advances to the medical profession is the necessary first step towards educating the population at large about the availability of modern, effective and less invasive choices of treatment for a range of spine disorders.
