The Importance of Artificial Intelligence to Improve Outcomes and Efficiencies through Standardization
Moderator: Rajiv Sethi, MD
Faculty: Christopher Ames, MD; Evalina Burger, MD; Christopher Kleck, MD; Rajiv Sethi, MD

Spinal deformities are complex conditions leading to variability in care outcome and cost. Maximizing the care value equation, i.e. improving the health outcomes while reducing the cost of care delivery, has become the most important challenge for the industry.

Using artificial intelligence, predictive modeling, and patient specific implants, MEDICREA®’s UNiD® ASI platform is driving the change toward standardization by improving outcomes predictability and reproducibility.

Please join us for this industry workshop that will go over:

  • The importance of standardization for spinal surgery.
  • The current challenges in adult spinal deformity and the opportunity offered by A.I.
  • The presentation of MEDICREA® UNiD® ASI platform through case examples.


Evolutions in Spine Care: Innovative Solutions for Complex Cases
Moderator: Lawrence Lenke, MD
Faculty: Jeremy Fogelson, MD; Ron Lehman, MD; Andrew Bowey, MD

Dr. Larry Lenke will moderate this informative workshop reviewing complex deformity cases and the use of novel surgical techniques, enabling technologies, and construct designs to address challenging spinal malalignments. Through a series of case reviews, faculty members will discuss patient selection, pre-operative planning, navigated robotic guidance, building sustaining constructs, and innovative ways surgeons are learning new skills.

  • Challenging Constructs; When Two Rods are Just Not Enough - Jeremy Fogelson, MD
  • Spinal Robotics; Holistic Construct Design with Robotic-guided Execution - Ron Lehman, MD
  • A New Era in Pediatric Deformity: From Virtual Reality to Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering - Andrew Bowey, MD


Powerful and Efficient Deformity Correction
Moderator: Amer Samdani, MD
Speakers: Jahangir "John" Asghar, MD; Robert H. Cho, MD; Stewart Tucker, MD

In this virtual workshop you will hear Dr. John Asghar, Dr. Bob Cho, and Mr. Stewart Tucker discuss their personal experiences applying the broad applications of Reline 3D across both adult and pediatric deformity cases. The session will be moderated by renowned spinal deformity expert, Dr. Amer Samdani.


Complex Pediatric Deformities: How Have We Evolved in the Past Decade?
Faculty: Benny Dahl, MD; Martin Gehrchen, MD, PhD; Firoz Miyanji, MD, FRCSC; Burt Yaszay, MD

Techniques have evolved, spinal implant technologies have advanced, and lessons have been learned! This interactive workshop will feature discussions around the toughest challenges and greatest lessons of the past decade in the world of pediatric deformity.
