Scientific activity

The National Center for Spinal Disorders also has an important role in the spine care scientific community and our surgeons are active in national as well as international organizations often appearing as guest lecturers at various conferences at home and abroad.

Several of our surgeons are involved in projects in the basic and applied research areas, conducted by leading companies involved in spinal surgery innovations. The backbone of our research and development is provided by large scientific projects realized through international cooperation.
