SMISS Conference 2017

The SMISS Annual Forum is the only major meeting focused entirely on minimally invasive spine surgery. Other meetings dedicate a lecture or two, or even a session, to MISS, but at the SMISS Annual Forum minimally invasive spine surgery is front and center. If you already use MISS techniques in your practice, or want to add them to your tool box, there is no better meeting for you to attend.
