"K2M just concluded a highly successful and educational meeting in Lisbon," Dr. Harry Shufflebarger, guest lecturer at the meeting, said in a press release. “Participants heard world experts lecture and discuss a variety of spinal topics. These include pediatric and adult topics of all etiologies. I rate this as a top-level educational event."
Meeting of Minds included 60 interactive discussions, case presentations and hands-on demonstrations on topics centered on adult, adolescent and cervical deformity, revision surgery, minimally invasive surgery, proximal junctional kyphosis and transformative solutions to accomplish three-dimensional Total Body Balance in spine patients, K2M said.
"K2M is proud to have welcomed some of the world's top spine surgeons to our annual Meeting of Minds, which featured the latest clinical solutions and advancements in spine surgery," John Kostuik, K2M chief medical officer and co-founder, said in the release.
"At this year's meeting, we also showcased BACS – a comprehensive platform of products, services and research – allowing surgeons to holistically manage the patient experience across the entire episodic care continuum,” Kostuik said. “We are pleased to offer medical education curriculums, coupled with our comprehensive BACS platform, with the goal of transforming spine surgery and improving the lives of patients around the world.”
