On July 20th, some of the top spine surgeons will be gathering in Las Vegas
to teach a course in Advanced Techniques in Less Invasive Spine Surgery.
Newport Orthopedic Institute is please that
Dr. Michael Gordon will be one of five physicians to teach this new technology & surgical
techniques course for spinal surgeons from across the nation. This one-day
program, which will focus on
Stryker spinal surgical products, is one step in the advancement of minimally invasive spine surgery. By
using these advanced techniques, patients will have a "faster recover,
less bleeding, shorter hospitalizations" according to Dr. Gordon.
"We are seeing a steady improvement in surgical techniques and these
innovations will continue in the future."
Dr. Gordon and the
spinal team at Newport Orthopedic Institute continue to advance their spinal techniques which allow our patients to
have the benefits of minimally invasive spinal surgeries. As a leader
in the industry, Dr. Gordon has been approached to teach and leave his
colleagues in the education of techniques that have been developed individually
and in concert with the industry as a whole. "It is always an honor
to teach other physicians new surgical procedures... I am gratified that
our experience in minimally invasive spine surgery at
Hoag Hospital is recognized nationally".
