Dear Colleague,

One of the fastest growing trends in the spine field is the move to minimally invasive spine surgery. If you already use MISS techniques in your practice, or want to investigate adding them to your toolbox, you need to attend the SMISS Annual Forum ’16 in Las Vegas, October 13–15, 2016. 
The SMISS Annual Forum is the premier meeting in the United States dedicated entirely to MISS. It is the Forum for MISS.

Please take a few moments to review the Preliminary Program and consider registering for the Annual Forum. Last year we had record attendance and we hope you’ll join us in 2016!

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas this October!
