About this event

Webinar #2

Sagittal balance and disc replacement

After a successful first edition, the members of the S.A.C (Spine Arthroplasty Community) sub-group of the GECO offer another opportunity to share their experience.
Such as the first edition, this second webinar is entirely dedicated to spine arthroplasty with a focus on a new generation of cervical and lumbar disc prostheses: using viscoelastic technology. Thanks to their monobloc design viscoelastic prostheses are aimed to restore physiological movements providing six degrees of freedom and three-dimensional motion including shock absorption.
The main thread of this webinar is the restoration of the sagittal balance after total disc replacement.

The 4 faculties are:


  • Dr Svante Berg (Sweden)
  • Pr Jean-Yves Lazennec (France)
  • Dr Alexis Perrin (France)

Moderator: Dr Olivier Ricart (Luxembourg)
