Endoscopic minimal invasive spine surgery and the future

Conventional clinical outcomes of spinal surgery are not always perfect. A new aware state technique, TELDF, has taught much about the true sources of back pain which are much at variance to conventional concepts, resulting in safer improved outcomes.

Date and Time

About this event

Spinal Surgery is but 100 years old and in recent years new technology has facilitated new
techniques for investigation and surgery.

Current treatment strategies rely upon concepts derived from the inert sources of anatomy,
anaesthetised surgical patients, X-rays and CT / MRI scans.  Conventional clinical outcomes
are not always perfect.

The lecturer has evolved aware state Transforaminal Endoscopic Lumbar Decompression &
Foraminoplasty (TELDF) which has taught us much about the true sources of back pain
which are much at variance to conventional concepts.  TELDF has resulted in safer improved
outcomes for most problems afflicting the degenerating spine and in any age even with comorbidities
despite the presence of prior spinal surgery.

TELDF provides an interesting vehicle for yet more evolutions including Mesenchymal Stem
Cell disc reconstruction.
