Welcome to ICS 2018

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

On behalf of the Delhi Spine Society, we have the pleasure of inviting you to the Instructional Course in Spine (ICS 2018), being organized from 9th to 11th August 2018, at Radisson Blu, Amritsar, Punjab.

For the first time, we will have 3 days of Academic extravaganza. With the past experience of ICS at Shimla and Udaipur and two ASSICON's at Delhi, we will keep up to your expectations. The Venue hotel is especially designed for such events and we have booked the whole hotel for the event.

The theme of the course is 'Tumors and Minimally Invasive Spine surgery.' We also have the privilege of the participation of the Korean Spine Society for this course. Two of their faculty will grace the event. With major advances in tumor surgery and minimally invasive spine surgery we felt that focus on these two topics will be most appropriate. For the young surgeons and the trainees this will be an opportunity to learn the new techniques. Their participation in this forum will give them a unique chance to interact with well acknowledged speakers/faculties from across the globe, who will share their experiences and vision. The ICS 2018 aspires to assemble the very best of spine surgeons, along with the pharma and the spine manufacturing industry showcasing their best and the latest in the treatment and care of spine surgery.

About Amritsar

Amritsar, historically also known as Rāmdāspur and colloquially as Ambarsar, is a city in north-western India which is the administrative headquarters of the Amritsar district - located in the Majha region of the Indian state of Punjab.

Amritsar is home to the Harmandir Sahib (commonly known as the Golden Temple), the spiritual and cultural centre for the Sikh religion. This important Sikh shrine attracts more visitors than the Taj Mahal with more than 100,000 visitors on weekdays alone and is the most popular destination for non-resident Indians (NRI) in the whole of India. The city also houses the Akal Takht, the highest seat of earthly authority of the Khalsa, and the committee responsible for the upkeep of Gurdwaras.
