Course Co-Chairman Dr. Jonathan Phillips (Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children) said of the program “The International Children's Spine Symposium has become the premier course of its type. Outstanding faculty, facilities and subject matter have set the benchmark for instruction in surgery of the child's spine.”
