“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.


Dr. Anthony Yeung, Chief Medical Officer of HJY-YESS, Professor of University of New Mexico, world renowned spine endoscopic surgeon, inventor of spine endoscope and surgery technique, elected top 100 surgeons of 2015 in USA, more than 25 years clinical experiences and exceeded 10,000 procedures, came to Ningbo to teach.

Journal of SpineDrs. Anthony T. Yeung, Christopher A. Yeung, Nima Salari, and Justin Field of DISC, along with James Navratil and Harrison Maio, have recently published an article in the Journal of Spine, an Open Access, peer reviewed, academic journal that provides a complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in all areas of the field.

The article is titled “Lessons Learned Using Local Anesthesia for Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery” and focuses on 9 main lessons that these surgeons have encountered while utilizing local anesthesia during minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery to relieve spine pain – chief among them that operating under local anesthesia allows the patient to respond and provide feedback during surgery that is invaluable for patient safety and for the assessment of the pain generators and ultimately understanding of the source of pain that the surgeon is targeting.

What a fun day! Over 275 people showed up for the first annual WGYB RACE in Scottsdale on February 8, 2014. Race proceeds benefitted The Spinal Research Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding new cures for those suffering from spinal disorders. Patients who have overcome their back or neck pain received special “Spinal Champion” tees to honor them on race day.
