joimax(R) Hosts Symposium at WCMISST; Presents Kambin Award to German Surgeons
KARLSRUHE, GERMANY--(Marketwired - June 09, 2016) - joimaxÂ® , the global developer and marketer of technologies and treatment methods for minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgery, recently hosted an educational symposium and exhibit during the 5th World Congress of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery & Techniques (WCMISST), held June 1-4, in Jeju Island, Korea. The World Congress, which takes place every two years, is attended by more than 500 physicians and is recognized as one of the most important congresses for minimally invasive spine surgery.
Additionally, joimaxÂ® hosted an educational symposium for spine surgeons from across the globe. "About 200 attendees gathered to learn about the techniques of endoscopic minimally invasive spine surgery and the benefits of these techniques to both the surgeon and their patients," said Wolfgang Ries, founder and CEO of joimaxÂ® .
During the Congress' Gala Dinner, joimaxÂ® had the honour of presenting the Parviz Kambin Award to Dr. Guntram Krzok and Dr. Ralf Wagner, both from Germany, for their excellence in endoscopic spinal surgery. The Parviz Kambin Award is presented to pioneers in the field of endoscopic minimally invasive spine surgery. Nominees are selected by SMISS, WCMISST and joimaxÂ® .
Dr. Guntram Krzok, owner of a private practice in Friedrichsroda, Germany, has performed more than 3,000 endoscopic and transforaminal surgeries since 1999 and has provided training at 100 workshops. He was the first surgeon to introduce the TESSYSÂ® technique in China and routinely publishes about his growing experience in the field.
Since 2007, Dr. Ralf Wagner, from the Ligamenta Spine Center in Frankfurt, has performed nearly 2,700 endoscopic surgeries with transforaminal, interlaminar and cervical systems, as well as endoscopic assisted stabilization with the joimaxÂ® EndoLIFÂ® technique. He, too, has provided training at nearly 100 workshops, is an active speaker at international congresses and has published numerous scientific articles.
The Kambin Award, named after Dr. Parviz Kambin, was originally presented to Dr. Kambin (Philadelphia, PA) by the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (SMISS) and joimaxÂ® at meeting held in April of 2011 in Denver, CO. Previous award recipients include: Dr. Michael Schubert (Munich, Germany), Dr. Menno Iprenburg (Veenhuizen, the Netherlands), Dr. Anthony Yeung (Phoenix, AZ), Dr. Florian Maria Alfen (WÃ¼rzburg, Germany), Dr. Daniel Laich (Chicago, IL), Dr. Gabriele Jasper (Brick, NJ), Dr. Albert Telfeian (Providence, RI) and Dr. Sang-Ho Lee (Seoul, Korea).
Founded in in Karlsruhe, Germany, in 2001, joimaxÂ® is the leading developer and marketer of complete systems for endoscopic minimally invasive spinal surgery. With TESSYSÂ® (transforaminal), iLESSYSÂ® (interlaminar) and CESSYSÂ® (cervical) for decompression procedures, Multiuse RT (e.g. for rhizotomy) or with EndoLIFÂ® and PercusysÂ® for minimally-invasive endoscopic assisted stabilizations, proven endoscopic systems are provided that, together, cover a variety of indications.
Whether herniated disc, stenosis, pain therapy or spinal stabilization treatment, surgeons operate through small incisions under local or full anesthetic via tissue and muscle-sparing corridors through natural openings into the spinal canal (e.g. intervertebral foramen, the "Kambin triangle").
