Message from Dr. Vernon Velho

NSSA President 2021-2022

Dear Friends,

After an agonising gap of two years and a cessation of all physical events, we are heading back on track. It was in the year 1996, August, that the first annual International spine conference was held in Mumbai, under the able guidance of our founder member, Professor P.S. Ramani. It was this get together which initiated the birth of NSSA.

As the years passed the Annual Conference of the NSSA gained popularity and recognition worldwide. They witness record-breaking attendance by delegates of all levels in expertise in the field of spine surgery. It gives me immense pleasure to share the good news with all of you that we have completed 25 years of Annual Conferences in 2021, which was originally marked for Mumbai. We are in preparation to celebrate this achievement in Mumbai, Maharashtra from September 15th to 18th 2022.

Our organising team headed by Dr Sumeet Pawar has lined up a comprehensive and Holistic scientific program lasting over a period of 4 exciting days, spiced up with cadaveric dissection courses, hands on simulation modules, live operative workshops and well-balanced scientific sessions. Not to forget the enthrailling entertainment activities planned for you and your families.

I extend my warmest welcome to you and request you to register at the earliest by availing of the early bird offer.

Wishes & Regards.

Dr. Vernon Velho
