JMISST Special Issue
Sub-title: Endoscopic Approach for Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Recently, the rapid development of spinal endoscopic surgery has been applied to a wide range of spinal diseases, and is expected to become the main stream of future spinal surgery and treatment.

In particular, through endoscopic lumbar fusion surgery, which has been actively implemented recently, many barriers to spinal endoscopic surgery that had not been overcome so far are being overcome. Through this, we are providing better treatment to patients.

We expect that robotic surgery based on spinal endoscopic surgery and treatment will be performed in the future.

In the January 2024 issue of JMISST, we will look back on endoscopic lumbar fusion surgery and learn about the future of endoscopic spinal surgery and treatment supported by TSMISS (Taiwan Society of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery) AND TSESS (Taiwan Society Of Endoscopic Spine Surgery).

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Uniportal Endoscopic Lumbar Interbody Fusion
  • Biportal Endoscopic Lumbar Interbody Fusion
  • Endoscope assisted Lumbar Fusion Surgery
  • Endoscopic or Endoscope assisted Cervical, Thoracic Fusion Surgery
  • Supportive Materials of Endoscopic Lumbar Fusion Surgery
  • Others related to the endoscopic fusion surgery
