American Spine is pleased to announce that it will be holding its 21st training course for "Endoscopic Operations of the Lumbar, Thoracic Spine Symposium with Live Operation and Cadaver Workshop" located at 1050 Key Parkway Suites 102 & 103, Frederick, MD on Friday, August 21, 2015. Presenting physicians are Dr. Said Osman, Dr. Sandeep Sherlekar, Dr. Atif B. Malik, and Dr. Ojedapo Ojeyemi.

The providers and staff at American Spine invite interested physicians to attend this event sponsored in part by Amendia.

Cervical, thoracic and lumbar disc herniation is a common problem requiring discectomy. In general, open spinal discectomy is associated with muscle and ligamentum flavum dissection that can cause scarring and long-term side effects. In order to make cervical and lumbar disc surgery truly minimally invasive, we will use a transforaminal approach using a 1-centimeter incision to access the disc endoscopically. These operative techniques significantly reduce healing time and potential long-term complications.

This endoscopic technique can be used in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions. Because an endoscope can enter into surgical anatomy and has the capability to look around with a 25-degree lens, unlike the operating microscope that views the surgical site from a distance, endoscopic discectomy requires a smaller incision and less tissue dissection than microscopic discectomy. Obviously, this minimally invasive, less traumatic, endoscopic cervical, thoracic and lumbar discectomy leads to excellent results, faster recovery and significant savings, which is extremely gratifying for the patient and the surgeon.

We have devoted ourselves to further development in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery. We hope this training course will offer great opportunities for spinal surgeons and pain management physicians to communicate, exchange experiences and upgrade their expertise that will eventually lead to further development and innovation in this field.
