It's an old tecnique, well presented and explained. Unfortunatly I don't think it can be considered superior to the microscopy tecnique.
We had the oportunity to observe six live surgeries of different kind; I realy appreciate this. Dr. Destendau and her collegue Dr. Rue shared their experience honedtly and generously.
The course was presented on internet as an international congress about endoscopic spinal surgery but it was not so. It was a course on a particular endoscopic technique, nothing else. It was a bit cheeky to advertise it as such a great event. It was interesting anyway. A bit disappointed for the gala diner, while the wine tasting on the first evening was great.
Very fine course and plenty of time for questions and answers. All instructors were very approachable and answered questions thoroughly.
Excellent inputs, leisurely paced, with a lot of time to interact , great hospitality, an experience worth repeating
