On the 16th of February, Skymedical, in partnership with Maxmore Spine, performed the 9th Skymedical Cadaver Lab – Spine Endoscopy Hands-on, at the Anatomical Theater of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto.
The Spine Endoscopy course was attended by 15 students from the area, who received knowledge and experience from various faculties present, three of them portuguese and two foreigners. From Brazil and Spain, Dr. César Bertonha and Dr. Manuel González Murillo, respectively, two renowned surgeons in the field of spine surgery. From Portugal, Dr. Miguel Carvalho, Dr. Miguel Varzielas and Dr. Óscar Alves, also with a lot of experience in the area.
The course included theoretical and practical sessions, and four workstations were available. Two stations were exclusively designated for the transformational approach, in which the PTED system with Tom Shidi was used. The other two workstations were dedicated to the interlaminar approach, using the PSLD system.
The organization of another Cadaver Lab reinforces Skymedical’s mission of sharing the knowledge and experience gained from years of trust, while remaining on the side of health and evolution.
