Welcome from the course co-chair

Dear friends and colleagues
We would like to take this opportunity to cordially welcoming you to First Belfast brain and spine conference and workshop.
Following collaboration between Neurosurgery and Orthopedics spinal surgery, this activity and conference came to light, and this will offer unique opportunity for both neurosurgeons and Orthopedics spinal surgeons to meet and discuss, share the experience, knowledge and skills and to have a hands on  cadaveric training in both spinal procedures , microsurgical skills and also cranial  approaches.
We took this opportunity to provide an interesting and attractive programme and we are very proud to have a  world renowned experienced guests from both Neurosurgical and Orthopedics spinal communities.
Our state of the art cadaveric facilities at Queens university Belfast will provide interesting and high quality  hands on workshop

We have tried to design this course mainly to target Senior trainees and possibly young consultants and specialists in both Neurosurgery and Spinal Orthopedics surgery to consolidate their knowledge and boost their skills in various spinal approaches and procedures and also Neurosurgical mainly skull base approaches which we believe the skills they need to start their consultants / specialists journey.
We are also keeping with the current trends and developments in spinal surgery and will take this opportunity to provide hands on training in Minimally invasive spinal surgery, including posterolateral  and lateral and also endoscopic procedures.

We believe that the programme will be intense, interesting and appealing to all attendants and guests .

We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Belfast.

Welcome to the first Brain and Spine Conference in Belfast. I encourage all the spinal fellows and trainees, both from orthopedic and neurosurgical background to register for this course. It will be the first international course in Belfast to combine our two specialties and covers contemporary techniques and approaches, minimally invasive techniques, our own experience in lower back pain to name but a few. I addition there will be multidisciplinary lectures - oncology and radiology. We have been very fortunate with our International faculty from both fields who will share their experience with us. 

I welcome you to Belfast and hope to see you in September.
