1 Day

London Neuroscience Academy in collaboration with London Neurosurgery Partnership is delighted to announce The London Spinal Congress 2018. The symposium is aimed at individuals from a variety of healthcare specialties specifically physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, GPs and occupational therapists as well medical students, SHO’s and spinal trainees.

With a wealth of knowledge among the faculty the one day congress will teach and refresh delegates knowledge of the spine. Topics will include history taking, diagnosis and examination as well as the full range of operative and non-operative interventions.

The day will run in a series of lectures with opportunity for discussion and questions in a relaxed yet informative environment.

We would like to invite delegates to submit a complex or unusual case for the panel to discuss on the day to [email protected] The faculty will review the cases submitted and present back the five most interesting and relevant.

On completion of the course delegates will have the opportunity to sit in on and observe an LNP spinal clinic (with prior patient consent).
