I would like to inform You that from 8th to 10th of September 2022 in Kraków (Puro Hotel Kazimierz), we will be hosting a medical symposium – “Spinal oncology: multidisciplinary approach for complex care”, devoted to the multidisciplinary treatment of primary cancer and spinal metastases. Our meeting is organized together by the Czech and Polish Society of Spine Surgery. It will be the first symposium of that type in Poland and the second in Europe.
The main goal of the symposium that is happening in Kraków this year, is to create a platform where specialists can exchange their experiences, but also to help in the development of multi-specialist teams; as well as to show good models of cooperation that are already in existence.
As the participation of specialists seems necessary to us in the created teams, on behalf of the Polish and Czech Spine Surgery Society, I would like to invite You to participate in our meeting,
