This commitment makes this support of SMISS, the pre-eminent minimally invasive society, a logical step for Globus.
PhD, Executive Director of SMISS noted: "Many surgical procedures have evolved to utilize minimally invasive approaches to treat a myriad of conditions, and for some, such as endoscopic ACL repair, the minimally invasive approach is the standard of care.
The registry will be formally announced in conjunction with the annual meeting of SMISS to be held October 21st - 23rd in Las Vegas, NV.
Choll Kim, Executive Director of SMISS
and Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California - San Diego: "We, at SMISS
, consider endoscopy of the spine to be a progressive technique with huge potential for the future of minimally invasive spine surgery.
SMISS Highlights features 10 informative video modules that address indications, techniques, and outcomes for current minimally invasive spine techniques.
While the SMISS Annual Meeting partially meets this need, we want to make top-quality MIS education available for far more surgeons worldwide.
Topics of the SMISS Highlights series include: minimally invasive TLIF, interspinous process, pre-sacral, and direct lateral techniques, plus MIS techniques for spinal trauma, deformity, and degenerative problems.
The SMISS Highlights series is a major step toward that goal.
