这个四月我们与江门市中心医院脊柱外科陈忠羡主任通电话，这个月他们科室开展了一台非常高难度的脊柱肿瘤手术，病人来自台山的，术前团队也与世界脊柱肿瘤第一人Boriani 教授讨论了手术方案。陈主任科室的付兆宗博士正在传说中的意大利里佐利骨科研究所学习。Boriani 教授也认为这个病例超级困难，最终脊柱外科联合胸外科和泌尿外科一起共同完成了这台高难度的脊柱肿瘤手术。2018年1月Boriani教授 在世界微创脊柱大师Mayer的推荐下来到了江门市中心医院脊柱外科，至此陈忠羡主任就下定决心要发展脊柱肿瘤技术。今年5月30日陈主任将从广州飞往米兰前往博洛尼亚的里佐利骨科研究所，他将向Boriani 教授的团队学习脊柱肿瘤技术，江门市中心医院脊柱外科是江门，珠海，中山地区唯一可以独立开展脊柱肿瘤手术的科室。Boriani 教授因个人亲自主刀了超过2000台脊柱肿瘤手术为此震惊世界。他创建了里佐利骨科研究所骨肿瘤的传奇故事，他被业界称为世界脊柱肿瘤第一人。这四年的时间江门市中心医院脊柱外科在陈忠羡主任的带领下由每年800台脊柱手术增长到了2000台，每年可以独立开展50台脊柱肿瘤手术。江门当地百姓无需跋山涉水到中国一线城市即可在当地治疗这种复杂而罕见的疾病。这就是我们多年来坚信要深耕基层医疗的信心所在。5月13日Boriani 教授从博洛尼亚飞来广州，他将在东莞市人民医院骨三科工作一周，然后飞赴郑州，然后在郑州市骨科医院脊柱外科再工作一周。他将在这两家医院开展门诊，查房，病历讨论，手术指导，手术实操，科室管理培训以及大师公开课。Boriani 教授也将与中国这两家医院分别成立中欧骨肿瘤交流中心和中欧脊柱肿瘤交流中心。这是三年疫情之后首位到访中国三甲医院的世界级大师。
This April, we had a phone call with Director Chen Zhongxian, the head of the Department of Spine Surgery of Jiangmen Central Hospital. He told us that this month their team performed a very complicated spinal tumor surgery for a patient from Taishan, and before the surgery they also consulted Prof. Boriani, a world-class master for spinal tumor, for his advice on surgical planning. Dr. Fu Zhaozong, a member from Director Chen’s team now is studying at the prestigious Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute in Italy as a fellow. Prof. Boriani also found the case very challenging, and eventually Director Chen’s team worked together with the Department of Thoracic Surgery and the Department of Urology to complete this difficult spinal tumor surgery. In January 2018, Prof. Boriani, recommended by Prof. Mayer, a world-class master for minimally invasive spine surgery, came to visit the Department of Spine Surgery of Jiangmen Central Hospital, and after that Director Chen made up his mind that their team should be committed to develop the techniques of spine tumor resections. On May 30, Director Chen will fly to Milan from Guangzhou, and then transfer to the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute in Bologna, where he will learn the techniques of spine tumor resections from Prof. Boriani and his team. The Department of Spine Surgery of Jiangmen Central Hospital is the only department in the region of Jiangmen, Zhuhai and Zhongshan that can offer medical care for spinal tumor patients independently. Prof. Boriani has collected more than 2,000 cases on this subject so far, which surprises the colleagues worldwide. He plays a big role in the great evolution in the treatment of bone oncology in the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute, and he is a master for spinal tumor recognized worldwide. Led by Director Chen, the annual surgical caseload in the Department of Spine Surgery of Jiangmen Central Hospital has increased from 800 to 2,000 in the last four years. Every year, around 50 surgeries for spinal tumor could be performed in this department. The local residents are no longer trekking into the hospitals in the first-tier cities to seek medical treatment for these complex and rare diseases, but could receive the treatment in local hospitals. This built our confidence to keep our faith over the years that we should be deeply involved in developing primary care. On May 13, Prof. Boriani will fly to Guangzhou from Bologna. As a visiting professor, he will first spend a week working in the Orthopaedics Department III at the Dongguan People's Hospital, and another week in the Departments of Spine Surgery at the Zhengzhou Orthopaedics Hospital. His activities in the two hospitals include outpatient consultation, ward round, case discussion, surgical guidance and practice, providing training on department management and giving public class for spinal tumor. The two hospitals will build up a Sino-Euro Communication Center for Bone Tumor and a Sino-Euro Communication Center for Spinal Tumor together with Prof. Boriani. After three years of COVID-19, Prof. Boriani will be the first world-class master to visit Grade III A hospitals in China.
