SPINEART was a proud participant of the two-day Congreso SILACO-GEER, held in Barcelona, Spain last week. The event kicked off with a wonderful networking opportunity; an exclusive dinner held at the art museum of Catalonia. The following day, upwards of 500 surgeons had the opportunity to learn more about SPINEART’S products at the hands-on work stations dedicated to ROMEO®2 MIS, PERLA® (Cervical), BAGUERA® L (Lumbar disc prosthesis) and our Ti-LIFE Technology.
On June 3rd-5th, Spineart in Spain had the privilege of hosting Dr. Pollack and Dr. Morga from Cracow, for a series of peer-to-peer visitation surgeries. During the three days, the surgeons had the opportunity to observe cervical and MIS posterior lumbar approaches, as well as scoliosis correction.
More than a third of the attending surgeons participated in their first Spineart Event! The program included case presentations, two debates, a discussion on economics, and some surgeons brought “pending” cases seeking audience input. One surgeon commented “Once again, the organization, the format, the venue, and most importantly, the attendees made the whole experience both educational and enjoyable”.
The Spineart Team is proud to share the success of our Advanced Cervical Academy, held in Geneva on May 2nd and 3rd. Over the two-day course, 23 participants from 11 countries shared their experiences with esteemed faculty members. Special thanks go to our two Chairmen, Professor Vincent Pointillart (France) and Associate Professor, Marc Dreimann (Germany), for sharing their knowledge and technical skills with our attendees.
SPINEART and its exclusive partner in Brazil, Neuro Orthopaedics Surgeries (NOS), are proud to share our presence at the Congresso Brasileiro de Coluna, held in Sao Paulo on May 2nd-4th.
During this major event, we officially launched our new PERLA cervical posterior system to the Brazilian market, and conducted two in-booth workshops on TEKTONA.
Attendance was high, with excellent feedback on the products, which we expect will help grow our business in Brazil.
The British Association of Spine Surgeons (BASS), UK’s number one annual spine meeting, was held this year on April 3-5th, at the Brighton Centre, located right on the lovely Brighton seafront. The event brought together over 150 clinicians and allied health staff from around the world to expand their knowledge and networks. This year’s focus was on technological advances in spinal conditions, particularly; navigation, robotics and minimally invasive spine surgery.
We’re pleased to report that Dr. Fransen’s BAGUERA® C Experience talk, at the Hotel Du Vin, was well-attended. The take-home message was as follows: Cervical disc replacement with the BAGUERA® C prosthesis has an excellent record in terms of safety, clinical results and long term motion preservation. There was no index or adjacent level reoperation after 5 years. Radiological progression of adjacent level degeneration was seen in a significant minority of cases, but without clinical expression.
