NASSi Bangkok Meeting to Feature Hands-On Course Addressing Complex Spine Surgery and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

The inaugural NASS International Meeting in Bangkok, Thailand this July will explore the latest spine care science, techniques, and technologies through symposia, case-based discussions and podium abstract presentations.

Among the highlights will be a hands-on cadaver lab course held prior to the meeting on Tuesday, July 18th (8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.), that will address Complex Spine Surgery and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.

The Course Chairs are Charles A. Reitman, MD and John C. Liu, MD. Faculty will provide didactic and hands-on educational advancement for surgeons, residents, and fellows interested in learning the latest surgical indications, considerations, and techniques in complex and minimally invasive spine surgery. Faculty will discuss surgical indication, surgical anatomy, technique pearls, complication avoidance, and complication management in a small group environment. Participants will receive didactic materials prior to the course to enhance their education and preparation for the lab. Completion of this work will be necessary to allow more time in the lab and to optimize the lab experience.

Additional hands-on cadaver lab courses held prior to the meeting include:
  • Advanced Interventional Spinal Procedures and Injections
  • Understanding the Learning Curve on Endoscopic Spine Surgery: How to Raise Your Competency in Endoscopic Spine Surgery
  • Expanding the Indication of Endoscopic Spine Surgery from Uniportal to Biportal Endoscopy
