SRSN 2020 Logo

The 55th Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) Annual Online Meeting will feature presentations and research from a number of Columbia Orthopedics faculty, residents, fellows, and researchers. The SRS Annual Meeting, held virtually from September 9 - 13, serves as a forum for surgeons, scientists, and other providers to share information related to the best treatment options for patients with spinal deformity. The meeting will cover a variety of topics, via live presentations and/or self-paced viewing, including adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, growing spine, kyphosis, adult deformity, trauma, neuromuscular scoliosis and tumors.

See below for the syllabus of presentations, lectures, and papers being presented by Columbia Orthopedics faculty, residents, fellows, and researchers:

Evolutions in Spine Care: Innovative Solutions for Complex Cases
Moderator: Lawrence Lenke, MD
Faculty: Jeremy Fogelson, MD; Ron Lehman, MD; Andrew Bowey, MD
Dr. Larry Lenke will moderate this informative workshop reviewing complex deformity cases and the use of novel surgical techniques, enabling technologies, and construct designs to address challenging spinal malalignments. Through a series of case reviews, faculty members will discuss patient selection, pre-operative planning, navigated robotic guidance, building sustaining constructs, and innovative ways surgeons are learning new skills.
