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.
