Dear Colleague,

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.   

This year’s Forum will be held in Las Vegas, September 14-16, 2017, featuring two days of presentations, papers, debates and workshops, plus an optional cadaver lab.  The full spectrum of MISS topics will be addressed. In addition, there will be a special session on the role of MISS within the emergence of Ambulatory Surgery Centers.

Last year’s SMISS Forum received superb reviews. We hope you’ll join us in 2017 for the #1 meeting in MISS!
