On behalf of the Bihar Orthopaedic Association and the Bihar Orthopaedic Society, it is my proud privilege to invite all of you to the 35th annual meeting of the Association of Spinal Surgeons of India- ASSICON 2022, to be held in Patna from February 25- 27, 2022.
After two tumultuous years when the COVID pandemic played havoc across the globe, the situation in India seems to be steadily improving. This gives all of us hope that after 3 long years, ASSICON will be held in a physical format. The Organizing team of ASSICON 2022 pledges to take the utmost care to meet all government health and safety guidelines and endeavour to make it an academically rich, socially entertaining, healthy and safe experience for all.
At ASSICON 2022, the scientific program will focus primarily on the understanding and management of the ubiquitous but much neglected and poorly understood spinal problem, "The Degenerate Back and Neck". Besides this, we have also planned workshops on advanced spine techniques including Robotic Spine Surgery, Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Spinal Stabilization and The Cervical Spine. Videos of surgical techniques will also be telecast simultaneously.
