Spine Course on Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Indo German Orthopaedic Foundation successfully conducted its 1st IGOF Spine Course on Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery in Chennai at MIOT Hospitals on Saturday, October 11, 2008.
More than 200 delegates across the globe participated in this event.
Topic of discussion
In past 50 years, Spine surgery has emerged as one of the fastest growing disciplines of medicine. With growing experiences in spine surgery, the surgical fraternity has witnessed a flip side of open spine surgeries. Extensive epidural and paraspinal scarring, loss of posterior tension band, delayed rehabilitation, loss of working hours etc, have raised concerns and have paved the way for the development of Minimally Invasive Spine technologies. We, in this spine course, have tried to present a few of many minimally invasive spine technologies
- Dynamic stabilization of degenerated lumbar motion segment using DIAMTM
- Percutaneous pedicle screw fixation of thoraco-lumbar spine
- Balloon Kyphoplasty
The seminar was followed by Live Surgeries performed in the modern laminar flow theatres at MIOT Hospitals.
