Dear friends and colleagues,

It is an honor to be able to continue our academic activities in Miami. For more than 10 years with the support of many neurosurgeons from the United States and Latin America, we have been able to maintain an event that promotes networking and educational opportunities for future generations.

This year with the support of the Latin American Society of Neurosurgery in the United States and Canada (SLANC), the Latin American Federation of Neurosurgical Societies
(FLANC) and the World Federation of Neuro- logical Societies (WFNSC), we will continue such an important effort.

Thanks to our Symposium, approximately nine neurosurgeons have been able to gain training and education scholarships in the United States, to later return to their countries of origin, thus contributing to the development of the specialty from all over the region.

For all these reasons, I am pleased to invite you to the IX Brain Tumor and Minimally
Invasive Spine Symposium, with the main topic: Digital Neurosurgery – New Advances. We look forward to seeing you in Miami on November 2-5, 2023. I sincerely hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you personally in the city where business, fun and charm converge.


José Valerio Pascua

President IX Brain &
Spine Symposium 2023
