Inspired Spine Expands Global Access to Its Breakthrough Spinal Surgery

Partnerships in Dubai and South Korea advancing the standard of care in spinal fusion surgery

BURNSVILLE, MN (1/24/2018) – Inspired Spine today announced advancements in its strategy to evolve the global standard of care in spinal fusion surgery. Inspired Spine is creating a center for advanced minimally invasive spine surgery at the Canadian Specialty Hospital in Dubai, led by Dr. Mohammed Nooruldeen, and completed its first telemedicine consults with surgical patients there last week. As the first step in providing Inspired Spine’s advanced surgical solutions to their patients, surgeons in Seoul, South Korea participated in a live educational session to learn more about Inspired Spine’s innovative treatment approaches.

“We have established a true global presence for our cutting-edge advanced minimally invasive spine treatments and protocols,” said Dr. Hamid Abbasi, MD, FACS, FAANS, Chief Medical Officer. “Over the last two years, we have created the infrastructure and a rigorous training mechanism to enable other surgeons to learn our techniques. In addition, our protocols ensure that an Inspired Spine patient receives the same level of excellent care whether in the US, South Korea, Dubai, or anywhere else in the world.” Dr. Abbasi is the global leader in the Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLLIF) technique, which is transforming the standard of care for treating many of the causes of chronic back pain, including: degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, and spinal stenosis.

Inspired Spine recently opened a 120,000 square-foot Total Spinal Health and Technology Campus in Burnsville, MN to scale its global training program, enabling more surgeons to learn its techniques. Six peer-reviewed studies have been published on the superior outcomes delivered by its surgical techniques versus the current standard of care, including a minimally invasive fusion approach for effectively treating adult degenerative scoliosis. Multiple surgeons throughout the world are in various stages of Inspired Spine’s “soft transition” training program.
