Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure and honour to invite you all to the Spine Experts Group Annual Meeting 2018 (SEG 2018) to be held from November 30th – December 1st 2018 in the Hotel International in Zagreb, Croatia. This year’s meeting will be organized by the Department of Traumatology of the University Hospital Centre Sestre milosrdnice in coordination with the Croatian Society for Spinal Surgery, the Croatian Neurosurgical Society, the Department of Orthopaedics of the University Hospital Centre Zagreb, the Croatian Paediatric Orthopaedic Society,  the Croatian Vertebrological Society, and the Pro-Implant Foundation.

A year following the highly successful congress in Ljubljana, we will once again have an opportunity to meet and exchange our insights and the results of our work within the field of spine surgery. The SEG 2018 meeting aims to assemble spine surgeons from this part of Europe and beyond. We welcome all neurosurgeons, orthopaedists, traumatologists, and all other experts who partake in the care of patients with spinal pathology. It is a unique opportunity for gaining new knowledge and exchanging experiences, as well as forming new friendships and partnerships.

The informative lectures and active participation with the many local and foreign experts will be sure to peak your interest, motivating you to share your own clinical experiences during the Expert Chat sessions. This will provide a productive and comfortable atmosphere for such discussions, as was the case at prior meetings. Aside from intellectual content, SEG 2018 will feature a rich social program intended to further stimulate creative exchanges among spine surgeons, though in a more informal setting.

At the start of this year’s Advent, we hope to see you all in Zagreb, three time consecutive award winning city for the most spectacular Advent experience in Europe!
