Dr. Jazini Featured as Topic Expert at Annual North American Spine Society Meeting
Dr. Jazini recently presented research outcomes at the North American Spine Society 33rd Annual meeting held in Los Angeles, September 26-29, 2018. This society is the largest global multidisciplinary medical society that utilizes education, research, and advocacy to foster the highest quality, ethical, value- and evidence-based spine care for patients.1
Presenting alongside an esteemed group of medical colleagues, Dr. Jazini discussed new developments and techniques related to the treatment of spinal deformity, particularly scoliosis and kyphosis. He also presented the results of his biomechanical study which evaluated the impact of implants on a pedicle subtraction osteotomy (i.e. bone removal) used to treat advanced adolescent and adult scoliosis.
His research shows that the implants that provide anterior lumbar column support lead to a significant reduction of lumbosacral strain on screws and rods. This may contribute to more successful, longer-lasting surgical outcomes for patients with spinal deformity.
