Record Early Spine Fellows & Young Surgeon Enrollment for 10th Annual November Spine IEP Course

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Magnifi Group, Inc., announced today it is experiencing record early registration for its 10th Annual Spine IEP Fellows & Young Surgeons' Course (Spine Interactive Educational Program). The course will be conducted November 20-22 at The Fairmont Hotel, Austin, Texas.

A significant number of US Spine Fellowship Directors attribute the stepped-up early registration due to COVID-19.

Spine IEP Faculty member, Dr. R. Todd Allen, who serves as Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Spine Surgery at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Director of the University's Spine Fellowship program, said, now more than ever, the incoming Spine and Neuro Fellowship class of 2020-2021 will significantly benefit from the Spine IEP Course.

"Given the current pandemic, final-year Orthopaedic residents looking ahead to their spine fellowships, have not had the opportunity to take full advantage of their final residency year when it comes to surgical electives - as they relate to didactic spine work, labs and clinical training," Dr. Allen said. Dr. Allen added that even those schools offering a Chief Resident Rotation have been impacted.

The Spine IEP Fellows & Young Surgeons' Course will be limited to 50 attendees to accommodate a didactics rotation schedule of 45 tables hosted by medical device and biologics companies. Four cadaver labs will also be offered during the intense 21/2 day course.

The Spine IEP has been specifically developed to educate spine and neurosurgery Fellows and Young Surgeons on current topics related to the practice of spine and neurosurgery, as well as to assist attendees with the transition from academics to practicing surgeon. The classroom format for the course is highly interactive; all sessions conclude with question/answer sessions and panel discussions.

Laura McClain, Course Coordinator, said she anticipates registration fill up as early as July/August. "The upcoming course will represent the largest gathering ever of Spine Fellows and Young Surgeons for an educational event of this kind," McClain said. "Our sponsors also recognize that this course represents a significant opportunity to expose their latest techniques, products and treatments to the next-generation of spine and neuro surgeons," McClain added.

The Spine IEP Fellows & Young Surgeons' Course is led by Dr. Frank Phillips, Professor and Director, Division of Spine Surgery and Fellowship Co-Director, Spine Surgery at Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Ill. To register: https://www.spine-iep.com/sfc/register.html

According to Magnifi data, an average of 70-80 spine Fellows enters the US market each year as practicing spine surgeons. Of these, 48-50 Fellows & Young Surgeons are expected to attend the upcoming course.

Magnifi Group, Inc. is a developer of an FDA-compliant eLearning platform for the medical device and biologics industries. The company also hosts the Spine IEP Live Fellows Course; the Lower Extremity IEP Live Fellows Course and the Hip and Knee IEP Live Fellows Course.

Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites performs first navigated reverse total shoulder at an ambulatory surgery center in New England

SEABROOK, N.H. -- Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites is an ambulatory surgery center designed for, and specializing in, outpatient joint replacement surgery. Today, Dr. Moby Parsons of The Knee, Hip and Shoulder Center performed the first outpatient reverse shoulder replacement here using the Exactech GPS (Guided Personalized Surgery) preoperative planning and navigation system.

According to Parsons, "There are very few centers around the country offering surgical navigation for shoulder replacement at an outpatient surgery center. This is the first such case in New England."

Dr. Parsons is one of the design surgeons for the Exactech GPS system. A preoperative CT scan provides a detailed 3D picture of the patient's arthritic shoulder. Images are then imported into a planning software that allows the surgeon to virtually perform the operation, selecting the right implants and their optimal position and orientation relative to the patient's individual anatomy. This plan can then be taken into the operating room where special instruments with trackers synced to a computer and camera system allow real time navigation of the surgical plan.

"Arthritis causes wear and erosion of the socket bone. Our goal during surgery is to restore patient anatomy as best we can. Planning and navigation substantially improve our accuracy compared to conventional instruments," Parsons notes.

Parsons, along with several other design surgeons and engineers, has done extensive research and development on surgical navigation in shoulder replacement and has been using this technology for almost 2 years since it became commercially available. Parsons was also the first surgeon in New Hampshire to perform a reverse shoulder replacement in 2004 and was recently inducted into the American Shoulder and Elbow surgeons, recognizing his expertise in shoulder surgery.

Advances in patient preparation, pain management, anesthetic techniques and surgical techniques now allow many patients to go home the same day as their joint replacement surgery. "Recovery in the comfort of home is both safe and highly satisfying for patients," Parsons notes.

"Our ambulatory surgery center specializes in orthopedic procedures with a highly dedicated staff who focus on same-day care day in and day out. Experience and expertise really matter to do this well. We are extremely fortunate to have a center like Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites where we can deliver high quality outpatient joint replacement."
