We would like to thank the two Chairmen, Dr. Gregory Edgard-Rosa and Prof Constantin Schizas FRCS, as well as the four Faculties, Dr. Martin Janata, Dr. Francesco Caiazzo, Dr. Mudit Sharma and Dr. Joe Lee, for their expertise during the two-day Anterior Lumbar Academy held at the SWISS Foundation for Innovation and Training in Surgery (SFITS) laboratory in Geneva. 

Thirty surgeons from around the globe had the opportunity to train on the anterior lumbar spine approach on re-vascularized anatomical specimens.  They shared tips and tricks on a variety of techniques and discussed cases during these interactive sessions. 

We warmly thank all the participants for sharing their valuable experiences, benefitting their peers and patients alike.
