Learn More About Endoscopic Spine Surgery at the 5th ASEAN MISST This June
The 5th Association of South East Asian Nations Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery & Technology (ASEAN MISST) is happening from June 26 to June 29, 2019 in the city of Manila.
Said four-day medical conference is set to be led by 58 global experts in endoscopic spine surgery from over 24 different countries.
With a theme of “Paradigm Shift to Minimally Invasive Spine Solutions… Basic Concepts to Evolving Advanced Applications,” this year’s ASEAN MISST will open with a Cadaver Workshop at the University of the Philippines College of Medicine on June 26 and 27.
The workshop aims to introduce the basic techniques and instruments used in MISS, as well as serve as an opportunity for a hands-on experience.
A plenary conference, on the other hand, will be held on the last two days of the convention at the Manila Hotel. This is to educate participants on the basic science and evidence of MISS, familiarize them with the current technologies available, demonstrate its advanced applications, and take on issues commonly debated—like its benefits.
