(Ortho) will present his paper entitled “Anatomic MIS Treatment-based Classification of Spinal Motion-Segment Disease and Application in Endoscopically-Assisted Lamino-Foraminoplasty”, at the International 34th ISMISS Course for Percutaneous Endoscopic Spinal Surgery and Complementary Minimal Invasive Techniques in Chongquing, China, being held January 21 – 23, 2016.

Dr. Said Osman will be presenting research focused on a spinal motion-segment disease classification system which he developed at American Spine. This classification system is necessary in light of current multiple treatment options and the availability of sophisticated pre-operative imaging techniques. Such a classification will allow standardization of treatment options for various combinations of the pathological processes.

With the emergence of new technologies, surgical options can be upgraded based on a standardized classifications. This, in turn, will help minimize confusion for those who want to learn and facilitate growth in the minimally invasive technology field. Dr. Osman proposes that software needs to be developed in order to handle the massive combination possibilities and treatment options for ease of use by surgeons.
