The world-renowned spine surgery expert Professor Munish C. Gupta has recently visited the orthopaedic ward at Peking University Shougang Hospital and made an in-depth academic exchange with the orthopaedic fellows. Prof Gupta works at the Affiliated Hospital to California University at Davis. He once proposed the influential “Gupta Treatment Principle”, which is targeted at the lumbar degenerative de novo scoliosis (LDDS).
Prof Gupta delivered a speech titled “Osteotomy Selection for Spinal Deformity”, elaborating the history, the indications, the mechanics, and the prevention of intra-and post-operative complications of various kinds of spinal osteotomy. After the report, physicians at the meeting actively asked questions, which Prof Gupta patiently answered. He also made in-depth discussions with the physicians about the safe length in spinal shortening, when to do the internal fixation in the spine, the significance of somatosensory evoked potentials in spinal monitoring, and many other clinical questions. Physicians presented at the meeting noted that such globalized case study report was comprehensive and rich in content and it was indeed enlightening for clinical work.
