It is our great pleasure to invite you to the SpineWeek 2016 and to the ASSI Sessions.

The ASSI is the premier body of spine surgeons in India and has more than 600 life members, both orthopaedic and neurosurgeons spread across the country. The Association has two meetings every year - the Annual meeting which is usually in the third week of January and an Instructional course which is usually conducted in association with other major spine societies around the world.  In addition, ASSI members form a prominent faculty in instructional courses and symposia all around the country in many regional and state meetings.

At the Annual Meeting, the Association has three national awards – one each in Clinical Science, Basic Science and for the Best Publication.

The SpineWeek offers great opportunities for delegates from many countries and all spine societies to showcase their regional talent and share their high quality academics and research with members of other societies.  Apart from the great educational opportunity, there will also be ample opportunities for fellowship, making new friends and strengthening old relationships.

We look forward to seeing you in Singapore.
