Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you the “ISMISS Turkey 2015 Congress” which will be held at the Novotel Hotel in Istanbul on November 6-8, 2015.

ISMISS (The International Society for Minimal Intervention in Spinal Surgery) , is the worldwide pioneer society promoting minimal invasive spinal procedures such as spinal endoscopy, percutaneous decompression techniques, segmental stabilization, as well as other complimentary pain procedures. As the ISMISS Turkey Chapter (, this year we are privileged to organize the International 8th Congress for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery & Techniques.

The main topic of the congress is spinal endoscopy, percutaneous spinal pain procedures, and minimal invasive spinal decompression and stabilization techniques. The congress is just “intense”, and full of excellent lectures from prominent ISMISS experts, results of implementation of new procedures, novel ideas, workshops from industry, debate sessions, and video demonstrations. An additional one-day “Spinal Endoscopy Cadaver Course”, and another one-day, “Spinal Injections Cadaver Course” will enrich their attendees’ educational gains greatly. Disregarding your level of experience, you will have opportunity to learn from most experienced experts of the area, exchange your ideas, network, and hopefully obtain a higher level of competence when you back to home.

This year, the location of our congress is Istanbul, one of the most historical, beautiful and exotic capital cities of the world. November is a very pleasant time of year to be in Istanbul. The location of the congress venue, the Hotel Novotel Istanbul is just perfect, having beautiful coastal view of the Marmara Sea, being very close to Istanbul’s historic peninsula, to the Cerrahpafla Faculty of Medicine (venue for cadaver courses), as well as to the Atatürk Airport.

In accordance with the location of the congress, the historical Istanbul, this year’s congress theme is Byzantine. Printed and online material of the congress, the fonts, artwork, and congress’ color (Tyrian purple) are all in line with this theme. Most importantly, in the social program we will have a guided tour to the great Hagia Sofia, a must see, one of the unique monuments of the world.

We guarantee you will have an unsurpassed experience in the “ISMISS Turkey 2015 Congress” in Istanbul both scientifically and socially.

We cordially look forward to see you in Istanbul in November 2015.


On behalf of the organizing committee,

Professor A. Fahir ÖZER, MD

ISMISS Turkey Chapter, Head

ISMISS TURKEY 2015 Congress President
