2015 ACMISST ASIA MISS & IITTSS Conference
ACMISST is a platform for spine surgeons to know the various developments in spine surgery and advancement in spine health technologies. The conference is jointly hosted by Asian Academy of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (Asia MISS) Korea, and International Intradiscal and Transforaminal Surgery Association (IITTS), USA.
It is a one-of-a-kind platform where surgeons, physicians, scientists and other spine specialists from the spine care field get a great opportunity to discuss and acquire knowledge about latest techniques in the field of spine surgery from leading international experts.
The meeting also provides a platform to present the evidence, debate, and to discuss controversial topics about surgical and other procedures as well as the treatment of spine patients. It also has various sessions for conservative treatment and pain management.
Where: Goa, India
Venue: Hotel Cidade de Goa
The main change has been a shift in spine surgery from a morbid surgery under general anesthesia to stitch-less surgery under local anesthesia.
Minimal Access Surgery procedures can induce cost savings by eliminating the need for blood transfusions, shortening recovery time so patients spend less time in the hospital, improving outcomes so patients can return to work more quickly and allowing the procedure to move into the outpatient setting.
Spine care is changing to minimally invasive techniques and doing only what is necessary by zeroing on pain generators and following a new philosophy of targeting pain.
There has been much progress made in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, so ACMISST in GOA is going to be more exciting as this meeting will provide a dynamic platform on spine health technologies. This year it will intentionally take a leap into the future to unveil, explore and understand the Gen-NEXT in spine procedures and techniques with special focus on three main pillars of surgery of degenerative spine, namely Minimal Access Surgery, Pain Management and Stitch-less Spine Surgery under Local Anesthesia.

Dr. Anthony Yeung (Executive Director, IITTSS)
“Science and art of minimally invasive surgery has progressed over last 4 decades to awake and aware surgery tackling almost all problems in degenerative lumbar spine under local anesthesia. We now have viable alternatives to fusion in lumbar spine surgery.”
This meeting bridges pain management concepts with minimal access surgery principles. The meeting will benefit all participants and they will come away with new concepts and techniques for treating their patients with spinal pain. Dr. Yeung has 24 years experience in endoscopy and is one of the pioneers of the philosophy.
