Annual SOLAS Meeting - POSTPONED

The Society of Lateral Access Surgery (SOLAS®) Annual Meeting has long been the considered THE meeting to attend to gain the latest knowledge on lateral access surgery. A mixture of case presentations, abstract submissions, and relevant symposia afford key opinion leaders and surgeons the opportunity to engage in lively conversations and to discuss the latest developments in lateral access research as well as the importance of patient selection, co-morbidities and anatomy. 


Dear SOLAS Community,

Given the many travel restrictions prompted by the COVID-19 health crisis and the uncertainty of future travel, it is with great regret that the SOLAS Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 13th Annual SOLAS Meeting. As a specialty, we are stronger when united, and the Annual Meeting provides a wonderful opportunity for education and fellowship.  We look forward to rescheduling the conference to a time more optimal for our members and colleagues to gather.

We thank our invited faculty and prospective attendees for your understanding during this challenging situation.

As always, your support of SOLAS is much appreciated and we look forward to announcing a new date for the 13th Annual SOLAS Meeting once we have a clear path forward.
