Endoscopic Spine Surgery Workshop for Experienced Users

Upgrade workshops are strategically designed for surgeons that are looking to take their first steps deep into Endoscopy.

These upgrade events are designed and tailored to support surgeons who want to take their first deepening steps into endoscopy. At the events, we provide an overview of endoscopy and break down each surgeon‘s career path to show them how they can advance endoscopically.

Three participants, as well as an ESPINEA® faculty member, will discuss new techniques and case reports, both from the portfolios of all attendees, to exchange the experiences in the operating room. Thus, allowing us to see where each surgeon is in their endoscopy career and how they can overcome any obstacles or uncertainties. With the guidance from a seasoned veteran, everything is possible.

Target Group

Surgeons experienced in endoscopic procedures who want to expand their range of indications.

Please note:
Own images and case reports are mandatory.
