We honorably invited Prof. Michael Mayer, the founding president of German Spine Society and the world MIS spine master, Dr. Daniel Rosenthal and Prof. Christoph Siepe, the well known spine masters to attend the online conference, giving surgical guidance and sharing experiences with Chinese colleagues. Supported by the great commentary by Prof. YAN Ming, attendees could get closer to the current endoscopic technologies of spine surgery and OLIF technique. There were 10 surgeries broadcasts arranged on cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine under full endoscopic and one about OLIF technique, with analysis and commentary over the whole procedure. In addition, the feast of knowledge also provided opportunities of practices such as 3D model-supported operation practice and anatomy practice on cadavers.

During the conference, the three German spine experts focused on the following three cases and gave online guidance.

·Oblique Lumbar Intervertebral Fusion (OLIF)

·Percutaneous Full Endoscopic Posterior Cervical Discectomy for Cervical Radiculopathy

·Unilateral Laminectomy Bilateral Decompression (ULBD) for Thoracic Stenosis

OLIF technique was invented by Prof. Mayer in 1997 and is now of high prevalence under his standards. Such technique takes its advantages of smaller incision, shorter operation time, less blood loss, shorter stay and quicker rehabilitation.


Prof. Mayer is the inventor of OLIF technique, but more of the pioneer to fully exert this technique.
