This educational programme addresses the treatment of AIS (adolescent idiopathic scoliosis) and adult deformity. The course covers essential concepts such as classifications, state-of-the-art correction techniques and sagittal balance. Current trends on more specific topics such as timing of surgery, conservative treatment and indications for osteotomies will also be discussed. Participants will practice the following fundamental surgical techniques at an anatomical workshop: 

  • Posterior pedicle screw fixation
  • Pelvic screw fixation
  • Translation/Derotation
  • Navigated thoracic screw fixation


Surgeons already exposed to deformity surgeries and that have limited expertise in this area. They should already have performed between 5 to 20 deformity cases per year mainly under the supervision of an experienced deformity surgeons.  


By attending this course, participants will:

  • Acquire the knowledge and skills to start or consolidate the practice in the most common AIS and adult deformity cases
  • Understand the challenges associated with the different types of deformity patients and the factors to consider throughout the decision-making process
  • Be able to select the appropriate techniques and solutions
  • Interact with peers and highly recognised experts in deformity
