About this event

Webinar #3

Viscoelastic disc replacement :

what about patient selection and post-operative care ?


The members of the Spine Arthroplasty Community (S.A.C) sub-group of the GECO are happy to invite you to their third webinar. They are looking forward discussing and sharing experience with you.
Such as the first editions, this 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 importance of indication selection and respect of post-operative care and recommendations after total disc replacement with viscoelastic disc prostheses.
