Message from President - MISSAB

I Dr. Shrinivas Rohidas, neurosurgeon of a small city of Kolhapur in Maharashtra feels happy to have this presidential address for annual conference at Hyderabad 2018. We have experienced the development of endoscopic techniques since 2002 since I started endoscopic spine surgery with Destandau’s technique. Technology has changed a lot since then, for example HD camera image changes the appreciation of endoscopic anatomy. Developments in instruments like endoscopic drills used in transforaminal approach, interlaminar approach with development of Kerrison punches, etc. has changed the awareness among young spine surgeons.

Now there is added responsibility on our shoulders to honestly present the results, complications, problems in our own learning curve, etc. so that young spine surgeons are attracted towards this budding super speciality.

Also we should not run behind the goal of achieving the gold standards in endoscopic spine surgery/ minimally invasive spine surgery, while always comparing the existing gold standard- the microscopic discectomy. We should not run behind 100% goal which is really unreachable, but we should, work hard for reachable goal like- everyday learning, training through our mistakes and by that improvements every day even after vast experience.

I welcome all the faculty and delegates to the auspicious event MISSAB 2018 at Hyderabad.

With warm regards,

Dr. Shrinivas Rohidas
President - MISSAB
