Invitation Letter from the President
It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the Fourth World Congress of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery and Techniques (IV WCMISST) 2014 will be held in Paris, France.
In the momentum that was initiated at the First WCMISST in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2008, and the progressive success of the Second WCMISST in Las Vegas and last year with the Third WCMISST in Bahia, Brazil, we continue the tradition of increasing collegiality among MIS colleagues internationally to provide a comprehensive platform for interactive discussions to further advance the innovation of MIS techniques and technologies.
The IV WCMISST 2014 is pleased to be partnering with numerous MIS societies, as well as other well established spine societies that are furthering their educational scope of MIS such as AOSpine and NASS.
In addition to the presentations by global innovators and leaders of MIS, interactive discussions and workshops, we are also preparing discussions on MIS training education, healthcare policy and outcomes, as well as, governmental and industry discussions which will offer new highlights.
We look forward to personally welcoming you to the IV WCMISST in Paris.
