RTI Surgical hosts symposium about the future of spinal surgery


RTI Surgical hosted a surgeon education symposium focused on future of spine surgery last week. The symposium featured keynote speaker John Regan (Spine Group Beverly Hills, USA), who addressed surgical planning and complication avoidance in complex spinal deformity correction, and Franco Vigna (Spine Surgery of Buffalo Niagara, USA) served as the chairman of the event. Additionally, there were presentations on current trends as well as techniques and approaches in spinal surgery today.

A company press release reports that RTI showcased several of its featured products and implants including Streamline OCT, MaxFuse, map3 Cellular Allogeneic Bone Graft and many more. The meeting was the third in a series of four educational symposia that RTI is hosting in 2014 as part of its STRIDES (Surgical training, research, investigation, development, education and skill) surgeon education and engagement programme.

“RTI’s STRIDES programme and corresponding symposia provide opportunities to take an in-depth look at spine surgery today and to generate idea-sharing and best practices within the industry,” says Brian Hutchison, president and chief executive officer of RTI Surgical. “We look forward to bringing together an incredible group of speakers to discuss the future of spinal procedures and how to benefit patients around the globe.”
