在19日大会上，Schön Klinik 国际医院集团创始院长Mayer教授，Sana集团奥芬巴赫医院脊柱外科和重建骨科外科主任Rauschmann教授，Malteser圣玛丽森林医院跨学科脊柱及侧弯治疗中心主任Schnake教授作为国际特邀嘉宾线上参会。
The 5th International Orthopaedics Forum of Cross-Strait Medical Health Exchange Association &Fujian Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Advancement Forum & Fujian Provincial MIS Treatment and Rehabilitation Center Forum was grandly held in Putian, Fujian Province from Nov 18 to 20, 2022.
Well-known domestic and overseas experts and scholars gathered online and offline to discuss the latest technological and clinical advances worldwide in the field of orthopedics.
Special thanks go to the host Prof. Lin Haibin for his warm invitation. Prof. Lin is a Full Professor in China, Doctoral Supervisor of Southern Medical University, the Chief of Orthopaedics of Cross-Strait Medical Health Exchange Association and the Chief of Fujian Provincial Spine Surgery Association.
Prof. Mayer, Founding Medical Director of Schön Klinik Munich Harlaching, Prof. Rauschmann, Head of Department of Spine and Reconstructive Orthopaedics Surgery, Sana Klinikum, Offenbach, and Dr. Schnake, Chief of Interdisciplinary Center for Spinal and Scoliosis Therapy, Malteser Waldkrankenhaus St. Marien, were invited to participate in the conference on Nov 19 as international special guests.
Prof. Mayer shared a lecture titled "Cervical Disc Arthroplasty - An Update 2022 ". He introduced some comparative studies of clinical efficacy of cTDR and ACDF for the treatment of cervical spine diseases. cTDR is a proven alternative for ACDF with the advantages of lower re-op rates, lower incidence of adjacent segment degeneration, etc, and with new implant designs, the risk of heterotopic ossifications can be decreased after cTDR as well.
Prof. Rauschmann then shared a lecture about local antibiotic therapy as treatment of spinal infections, where he shared that the treatment of severe infections of the spine should be timely and should follow the steps of detailed diagnosis, debridement, vacuum therapy, the changing of loose implants, and aggressive local and systemic antibiotic therapies. He concluded that although bone fusion is slower when local antibiotic therapy is used, it has an obvious advantage of local high concentration and systemic low concentration, which allows complete release of antibiotic substance so as to achieve better clinical outcomes compared to other therapies.
Dr. Schnake then shared a lecture titled "Modern technical trends in spinal surgery" by first showing a nice video of the modern operating room at Waldkrankenhaus. Dr. Schnake believes that the future of spine surgery will focus on technological innovations in operating room and for preoperative planning. With the development of various preoperative planning software, operating room of tomorrow will be equipped with more advanced equipment and the use of robotics, navigation, endoscopy, AI, virtual reality and other modern technologies in spine surgery will become the standard.
Prof. Lin Haibin also shared an academic lecture in which he introduced that their team has gone through a 20-year growth cycle in terms of the basic and clinical research on minimally invasive spine surgery, and they will continue to explore more precise and more minimally invasive surgical techniques with the support of robotics and microscopy.
During the discussion session, Prof. Mayer and Dr. Schnake highly praised Prof. Lin Haibin for his superb surgical skills, which have made spine surgery more minimally invasive, more precise and safer with robotics and microscopy, and sent their congratulations to his team for standing at the forefront of the development of spine surgery.
Prof. Lin Haibin expressed his sincere gratitude and hoped that he could have the opportunity to invite them to Putian, Fujian, for further academic exchanges in the future.
Prof. Lin haibin also expressed his thankfulness to all the domestic orthopaedic experts, including Prof. Zhang Yingze, Prof. Zhou Yue, Prof. Yang Huilin and Prof. Lv Guohua, for participating the conference online and sending their best wishes.
Prof. Lin Haibin has always kept in mind that doctors should stand in the view of patients when considering the technological development and should best leverage their skills to provide the greatest benefit to the patient. This is the virtual of a great physician who has the caring heart to the patient. We believe that with their contributions, the future of minimally invasive spine surgery will be better!
