Welcoming the new AO Spine Hungarian Council Chairperson Márton Rónai


AO Spine Europe and Southern Africa (AO SESA) is proud to welcome Márton Rónai as the new AO Spine Hungarian Council chairperson. Rónai was elected based on the votes cast from all AO members in Hungary, and the results have been approved by the AO Spine Nomination Committee (Nom Com).

“As a spine surgeon my goal has always been to be up to date with the latest theoretical knowledge and the manual capability in all fields of this discipline. As one of the biggest international professional communities, AO Spine provides opportunities for interested spine surgeons all over the world at any level of training. My thinking is totally in line with the philosophy of AO Spine. It is not only our dream, but also our duty, to develop spine care around us.”
