Dr O'Brien presents at the CNS meeting and AAOS meetings

At the Congress of Neurological Surgeons Spine Summit 2017 - 33rd Annual Meeting of the Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves, Dr O'Brien presented a lunchtime symposium on minimally invasive spine surgery.  Additionally, he was faculty for the Hands-on Cadaver Lab: Innovative Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Deformity Surgery. 

Additionally at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dr O'Brien was chairman of an instructional course lecture on avoiding complications in routine lumbar spine surgery.  

 

 

Dr Joseph O'Brien's research Featured prominently at LSRS

The Lumbar Spine Research society is an important organization with both Orthopaedic Surgeons and Neurological Surgeons presenting cutting edge research on the Lumbar Spine.  This year in Chicago, Dr. Joseph O'Brien will give 4 presentations on lumbar spinal surgery

  1. "2-5 Year Follow Up on S2AI Pelvic Fixation," has found that the mid term follow up in adult spinal scoliosis surgery using S2AI fixation is excellent when compared to other methods. 
  2. 'In Hospital Narcotic Usage Is Significantly Lower for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Versus Open Spine Surgery.'  Dr. O'Brien showed that minimally invasive surgery uses just 1/2 of the narcotics that open surgery uses for the post operative patient.
  3. "Clinical and Radiographic Analysis of Expandable versus Static Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion Devices with One-Year Follow-up," Showed that a new minimally invasive device that Dr. O'Brien investigated has superior radiographic alignment as compared to traditional devices
  4.  An instructional Course Lecture on how ‘to limit intra-operative blood loss in lumbar spinal surgery
