AOSpine invites you to the 9th annual Global Spine Congress (GSC), which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from May, 20-23, 2020. The GSC - the only international spine congress of its kind - is one of the biggest gatherings for thousands of spine surgeons from all over the world. The congress provides an outstanding forum to exchange ideas, network with fellow spine professionals, and to learn about the latest research, techniques, and technologies in spine surgery.
