Annual Meeting


This two day course begins with a didactic oriented dinner at the fabulous Big Rock Chop House, 245 South Eton Street, Birmingham MI on Friday evening from 6:00 p.m.- 8:40 p.m. This renowned, four-star restaurant is an ideal setting to begin our event. The evening session will feature expert neuro and orthopedic spine surgeons discussing three varying lumbar spine minimally invasive surgical techniques - OLIF, XLIF, TLIF and the open ALIF approach. Participants will also learn of exciting new technologies now on the market. The optional Diamond Crown cigar lounge or non-smoking main level bar area will allow for additional discussions among peers and vendors.

This year’s conference focuses heavily on cadaver lab training. Participants will reinforce their previous evening’s didactic session with a full day of cadaver training at the Marcia & Eugene Applebaum Simulation Learning Institute at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. This lab is one of the most advanced medical simulation facilities in North America. This $4.5 million educational facility is designed to change the way health care professionals learn and train. With its state-of-the-art equipment and experienced staff, the Center further cements Beaumont's reputation as a leader in medical education and high-quality patient care.

CME pending.
