  • VCR
  • Derotation
  • Anterior tethering
  • Navigated iliac screw fixation


Surgeons experienced in the treatment of AIS surgeries, who want to strengthen their knowledge and expertise in the treatment of more complex cases and techniques. They should perform between 20-50 deformity cases per year.  


By attending this course, participants will:

  • Be exposed to the latest anterior tethering system in the market
  • Discuss the management of complex AIS cases
  • Reinforce the knowledge and skills to practice VCR, derotation and navigated iliac screw fixation
  • Interact with peers and highly recognized experts in deformity
