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

TSI’s Phantom XL3 Lateral Access System Redefines the Standard of Care in Spine Surgery

SUGAR LAND, Texas -- TeDan Surgical Innovations (TSI) today announced the launch of the Phantom XL3(TM) Lateral Access System for lumbar spine surgical retraction. A full product release will be held later this month at the North American Spine Society Meeting (NASS) in Orlando from October 25 to 27.

Unencumbered access to the anatomy while maintaining a small surgical incision remains a clinical challenge for the minimally invasive surgeon. The all-new Phantom XL3 transforms the approach by eliminating instrumentation fiddle factor through the integration of unparalleled surgical access design elements - all with the focus of elevating the surgeon's experience.

"There are a variety of lateral lumbar retractors available today, but finding the system that meets all of your needs as a surgeon can be difficult. The intuitive design of the Phantom XL3 provides reliable retraction with a sweeping blade motion unlike any retractor on the market," said James J. Lynch, MD, FAANS, CEO Spine Nevada.

As a full solution to lateral lumbar access, the Phantom XL3 comes equipped with an integrated 360-degree directional EMG neuromonitoring dilator kit as well as lighting and shim components to provide additional stability and visualization.

"With a rise in minimally invasive approaches (MIS) for spinal fusions, we believe that the versatility and ease of use offered with our Phantom XL3 Lateral Access System will redefine the standard of care for MIS approaches," said Terry Johnston, VP of Sales and Marketing of TSI.

For a full product showcase, visit the TSI booth #1723 and attend the NASS Simulation Lab. To learn more about TSI's Phantom XL3 Lateral Access System or to register for the lab, visit http://www.tedansurgical.com/ or call 877-726-0886.
