Dr. Yeung speaks at the 2017 China Forum on Functional Neurosurgery

CFFN Meeting in BeijingThe China Forum on Functional Neurosurgery held an International meeting on September 16-17, 2017. The program’s agenda of Morning Plenary Sessions consisted of invited foreign experts from the USA, Canada, France, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. The Chinese members of the Chinese Institute provided the plenary Session on functional neurosurgery by futuristic talks by their Chinese faculty members.

On this occasion, Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery was, for the first time, an integral part of the main meeting in plenary sessions that included presentations on Endoscopic spine surgery by Dr. Anthony Yeung, from the USA and Dr. Gun Choi from South Korea, and Girish Datar, all students of Dr. Yeung. All three are key opinion leaders on endoscopic spine surgery.

Dr. Yeung covered the rationale of his selective endoscopic discectomy, a technique for surgically treating the pain generators in the lumbar spine by reviewing the role of chymopapain mediated intradiscal therapy. Selective endoscopic discectomy technique was trademarked by Dr. Yeung to represent the concept of “surgical pain management” for a wide spectrum of painful patho-anatomy in the lumbar spine.

Celebrating the Formation of the Yeung Endoscopic Spine Society in China

New sub-societies are being established in China and Taiwan, as Dr. Anthony Yeung steps up training all over the world. One such society is the "Yeung Fellow’s Endoscopic Spine Society," in China made up of his spine fellows and other physicians who are embracing the YESS endoscopic technique. A parallel "Academic Yeung" is also being formed for the Taiwanese Spine Surgeons currently being trained by Dr. Yeung.

The "Yeung Fellow’s Endoscopic Spine Society" is led by its President, Xifeng Zhang, M.D, PhD. and was formally ratified at the Chinese Functional Neurosurgical Forum (CFNF) meeting along with the publication of a Mammary book and with a full reception. The Society was able to get Chinese government approval for the scientific society–a monumental achievement.

In a surprise special event at the Chinese Functional Neurosurgical Forum attended by 800 neurosurgeons, non-surgeons, and attendees, Dr. Yeung was honored with a presentation as well as given the opportunity to introduced spine surgery for their Society.

"Inventor of Spine Endoscope Came to Ningbo to Teach; Drew more than 150 surgeons from East China to Learn"

"In many people’s eyes, spine surgery is regarded as a high-risk surgery. If not carefully performed, it may cause irreversible paralysis. Since the time spine endoscope and surgery technique was invented, surgeons now can perform spine surgery under visual condition that significantly reduced such risk. Yesterday, the inventor of spine endoscope and surgery technique, Dr. Anthony Yeung, visited Ningbo to teach and drew more than 150 surgeons to attend the training.
