President Dr. Park of Suwon Wiltse Memorial Hospital spoke at the Annual Conference of the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery


Wiltse Memorial Hospital (President Park Choon-keun), a spine specialized hospital designated by the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs, held a special lecture under the topic of ‘endoscopic disc removal for thoracic herniated discs: review of clinical and radiological results and techniques’ in the annual conference of the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery, San Diego, USA, on April 15.

 

Endoscopic surgery for thoracic herniated discs may damage normal structure while the damaged disc is removed, so use has been limited even when endoscopic spine surgery has been used commonly.

 

In this presentation, Dr. Park presented that endoscopic surgery can be a safe and effective treatment even for thoracic herniated discs, which has not been published yet, based on the diverse range of experience and clinical and radiological results so far.

 

 

The International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery holds annual academic conferences for spine specialists from around the world.
