COIMBATORE: A four-day international spine conference will be held at Ganga Hospital from June 30, during which more than 25 patients will be operated on for correcting severe deformities or other problems in the spine.
Organising Chairman of the Conference and Chairman of Orthopaedics and Spine Surgery at the hospital S. Rajasekaran said in a press release on Wednesday that international companies such as Synthes, Medtronics, Globus and DePuy had offered to fund these surgeries that could cost more than Rs.75 lakh.
Dr. Rajasekaran said 18 experts in spine surgery from India, the United States, Canada, Korea, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan would demonstrate challenging spine surgeries. Techniques such as computer navigated surgeries, vertebral disc prosthesis and vertebral disc replacements would be demonstrated.
Dr. Rajasekaran said emphasis would be on discussing the indications for surgery, choice of the procedure and the techniques rather than on any particular instrument. “Ganga Hospital is very particular to keep the course ‘patient and technique' oriented rather than ‘industry or implant' oriented,” he said.
