This three-day workshop (April 19-21) aims to train young surgeons in Minimally Invasive Spine surgery.

The workshop will be conducted by Minimally-Invasive Spine Surgeons Association of Bharat (MISSAB) under the guidance of Dr Deshpande V Rajakumar, Director-Department of Neurosurgery, Fortis Hospitals and President – MISSAB. Renowned National faculties will grace the occasion and will share knowledge with the attendees, while the 3D live surgeries will be broadcast at JW Marriott which will train and guide the young surgeons on various skills and techniques used during the surgery.

Dr Deshpande V Rajakumar, said, “With continuous innovation in spine surgical techniques, spine surgeons face new medical challenges. Minimally-invasive techniques are taking on the conventional methods of surgery to make healthcare more patient centric. This workshop aims to train the young surgeons on advanced techniques and understanding the principles of MIS surgery. Cadaver dissection is a norm used worldwide which enables surgeons to learn and practice the procedure on the cadaver before treating actual patients.”

Being the largest cadaver training programme in the world, MIS Live Cad has been successful in training more than 300 plus surgeons in the world.
