Dear Colleague,
The field of spine surgery is advancing rapidly. New developments seem to occur almost
weekly, from biologics to motion preservation, and from minimally invasive techniques to
dynamic stabilization. As a result, we consistently hear from spine fellows and established
spine surgeons that they want more up-to-the-minute, hands-on training. Therefore,
we are pleased to invite you to the 1st International Cadaveric Course on Emerging
Techniques and Technologies in Spine Surgery.

Not only will this course allow you to evaluate and discuss patient indications for the
newest treatments, but you will also see in-depth demonstrations and try out these
techniques yourself in 6 hours of cadaveric labs. The internationally renowned faculty will
focus on practical applications that you can use right away.

    > Posterior cervical strategies
    > Cervical and lumbar arthroplasty
    > Interspinous spacers and pre-sacral approaches to L5-S1

The course location is the University of Toronto’s Surgical Skills Centre, located at Mount
Sinai Hospital. Having recently completed an expansion project, this lab facility now
trains over 8,000 students and professionals every year. The meeting hotel will be the
outstanding Park Hyatt Toronto, in the fashionable Yorkville area.

We hope to see you in Toronto for this unique educational opportunity. Please register
early as space will fill very rapidly!
