Today begins the 14th Annual International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery (ISASS) in Miami, Florida. Two original research studies conducted at the Phillip Spiegel Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at FORE were accepted for presentation as part of the program.
The podium presentations will be delivered by FORE Research Director Brandon Santoni, PhD. The first presentation, which will be presented on Wednesday, during the Degenerative Lumbar Spine General Session will be “Indirect Decompression of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis with Transpsoas Interbody Cages and Percutaneous Posterior Instrumentation.” The second “Accuracy, Safety & Intraoperative Radiation in Robot-Guided Percutaneous Screw Placement,” will be given in the New Technology in Spine Surgery General Session on Friday afternoon. Both of these original research studies were completed under the direction of the late Tony Castellvi, MD.
In addition to the podium presentations, Dr. Santoni will be moderating the Spine Biomechanics General Session with Lisa Ferrara, Ph.D. on Friday, May 2, 2014.
ISASS is an international, scientific and educational society organized to discuss and assess existing strategies and innovative ideas in the clinical and basic sciences related to spine surgery and to enhance patient care.
