Frederick, MD (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
Potomac Labs will sponsor the DC Area’s first Advanced Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Training Workshop at American Spine Center in Frederick, Maryland on October 21, 2011. Led by Drs. Atif Malik (Frederick, MD) and Dr. Thomas Hoogland (Munich, Germany), a small group of physician invitees will partake in this comprehensive training curriculum, which includes both surgical observation of cutting-edge, endoscopic lumbar spine procedures, clinical presentations, and hands-on inanimate and cadaver experience.
This workshop will focus on state-of-the-art minimally invasive spine procedures, including the FDA approved maxMorespine® System to perform advanced endoscopic spine procedures that result in better patient outcomes compared to traditional spine surgery.
Dr. Atif Malik, Certified Clinical Instructor of Endoscopic Spine Surgery, will lead the workshop. He is the Medical Director of Advanced Pain Management Services, and has served as an Instructor in Functional Discography, Kyphoplasty, Lumbar Endoscopic Discectomy and various other minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Malik is a Diplomate of the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, with subspecialty in Pain Medicine, and completed his Pain Fellowship at Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
Guest clinical faculty will include pioneering surgeon, inventor and educator, Dr. Thomas Hoogland from Munich, Germany. Dr. Hoogland has performed over 13,000 minimally invasive spine procedures, and has devoted his clinical practice and research to endoscopic treatment of spinal diseases since 1989. His extensive expertise is incorporated both into the design and procedure of the globally distributed maxMorespine® System.
The maxMorespine® System is designed specifically for a postereolateral transforaminal approach to perform safe, targeted foraminotomy for restoration of the spine neuro anatomy. These innovative patented instruments provide access to all lumbar disc levels, as well as versatile manipulation and treatment of disc pathology without unnecessary destabilization of the spine or intervertebral disc which results from open spine surgery.
The workshop will take place on Friday, October 21, 2011 at American Spine Center’s (http://www.americanspinemd.com) new, state-of-the-art facility, located at 1050 Key Parkway in Frederick, Maryland. American Spine Center specializes in the latest non-invasive and minimally invasive surgical techniques, including the maxMorespine® System.
