The annual international meeting, Spine Across the Sea, will be held in Hawaii July 5-8 in a hybrid format, presented by the Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research (JSSR) and the North American Spine Society (NASS).
“Who has not missed the many personal interactions and relationships with colleagues and friends around the world in our academic meetings in 2020?,” said NASS Overall Chair Patrick Hsieh, MD. “As we emerged from the pandemic, Spine Across the Sea will likely be the first major educational meeting that will renew international spine experts' gathering in Hawaii,” he added. “Spine Across the Sea has been a meeting that many look forward to in the past couple of decades, but 2021 will be the most memorable meeting, providing a forum for spine surgeons, interventionists, and healthcare providers worldwide to resume presentations and discussions on the latest spine surgery, research, and developments.”
Spine Across the Sea will provide the latest information and concepts in spine care through oral scientific presentations and ePosters as well as symposia that will address Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Deformity, Trauma and Spinal Cord Injury, Novel Technology and Biologics, Cervical Stenosis and Ossification of Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (OPLL) with Myelopathy, and Controversies and Debates in Management of Lumbar Degenerative Spondylolisthesis. A technical exhibition will feature the latest spine products and services.
Attendees have the choice to register and attend the meeting in-person, held at the comfortable and relaxed setting of The Fairmont Orchid in the Kohala Coast, Hawaii or attend virtually from their home or office. Sessions will stream live and will be available to view on-demand after the meeting.
