10th annual meeting - 2017 - Inverness - Friday 10th and Saturday 11th November 

Well done to all for coming to make this such a successful educational and friendly Scottish Spine Surgeons meeting 2017. A list of those who registered was on the last newsletter.

A highlight was Lee (Mr Breakwell) making the trip from Sheffield to update us on the British Spine Registry. We all agreed that those units in Scotland who were able were going to include all lumbar degenerative pathway work. We will hold a session about this next year.

Thanks to all the invited presenters who gave practice changing talks. They will be appearing over the next couple of months on the site. Congratulations to all the paper presenters who represented their teams with distinction. The judges scored on a combination of academic and message communication merit. 

Congratulations to Sophie (Miss Adams) achieving the first prize award for paper 3 “Improving in-patient outcome after idiopathic spine deformity surgery by an Enhanced Recovery Pathway (ERP) and Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) philosophy: initial results of helping young people get better more quickly.” 

Well done to David (Mr Skipsay) for the second prize award for paper 4. "The Highland Spinal Triage Pathway; Improving Patient Care.”

Both accommodation and registration fees were kindly supported by our sponsors. We thanks them on behalf of our patients.

Until next year in Glasgow 9-10/11/2018, Best wishes,

Gerry, organiser Scottish Spine Surgeons meeting 2017 - Inverness
