Date : April 20, 2017

Fortis Hospitals, Bangalore, today participated in a relay live surgery workshop, MIS Live CAD 2017, for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS). The event was organised by Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery Society of India (MISSI) at Fortis Hospitals, Bannerghatta Road, and the 3D-live surgery was broadcasted at Hotel JW Marriot on April 8th 2017. The three-day workshop (April 7-9) highlighted the latest surgical technologies and best clinical practices in treatment of back and neck pain.

For the workshop, Dr. Deshpande V Rajakumar, Director, Department of Neurosurgery, Fortis Hospitals and Organising Chairman, Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery Society of India (MISSI), brought together the team of National and International Surgeons who performed and witnessed live surgeries.

Dr. Deshpande V Rajakumar shares, “Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery is going to be the future of global spine surgery. The workshop was conducted to educate young surgeons in both basic and advanced technologies that could help them understand various dynamics of MISS. The live demonstration of techniques helps doctors to learn and adopt MISS which would further help patients get the latest advanced level treatment.”

He further added, “There is tremendous interest in young and mid-level surgeons to learn the nuances of this technique. Having been an early adapter of this technique for about 14 years, I believe that it is the right time to expose them to MISS.”

The doctor is actively involved in developing new endoscopic approaches to brain and spine diseases, Dr. Deshpande has taken this initiative of creating a platform for knowledge sharing and training.

Over 100 surgeons had registered for the session and 9 patients were treated with advanced Minimal Invasive Spine technique.
