Who's Going to Tell Docs Old-Fashioned Spine Procedures Are Dead?

July 5, 2022
Zed Williamson

"Old-fashioned spine surgery is dead—it just hasn't been told yet." That's a bold statement, but if anyone's qualified to make it, it's Dr. Hamid Abbasi.

He's chief medical officer at Inspired Spine, a board-certified neurosurgeon, and an internationally recognized expert in minimally invasive spinal surgery. Dr. Abbasi is also one of the most experienced surgeons to perform the OBL lateral lumbar inner body fusion procedure, and the only surgeon currently performing minimally invasive thoracic inner body fusion. Join us as he explains how modern medicine’s tendency to “play it safe” can sometimes harm (or at least severely limit) patients, and what it will take for“game-changing” procedures to supplant outdated ones.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Stats proving Dr. Abbasi’s claim that “having a spine problem is part of being human”
  • Why Dr. Abbasi likens the discs in our spines to tires on a car
  • Lessons from one of Dr. Abbasi’s hero, Nobel Prize-winner Barry Marshall
  • The type of red tape that's most restrictive to innovative surgeons in 2022

Plus, we exploreMedTech’s role in spine’s patient-driven revolution.
