SpineFrontier Takes on the 2017 ISASS Conference

The 2017 ISASS Conference was a success! We were honored to showcase our products at the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery’s (ISASS) Annual Conference in Boca Raton, Fla. this week and enjoyed meeting and networking with various professionals in the industry. A few of our SpineFrontier crew flew out and represented, presenting the latest Less Exposure Surgery Technology alongside AxioMed’s hands-on demo of their Freedom Disc.

“The ISASS Conference provides a rare, independent space where innovative ideas become reality. It was great representing SpineFrontier amid such a vast audience of likeminded individuals in the industry,” said SpineFrontier Industrial Designer Josh Finkel.

ISSAS is a global, scientific and educational society dedicated to advancements in spine surgery. During their annual Conference, surgeons, scientists, inventors and various professionals in the industry come together to discuss and address issues involving spinal techniques and technologies. These include basic and clinical science of motion preservation, stabilization, innovative technologies, MIS procedures, biologics and other fundamental topics to restore and improve motion and function of the spine.

AxioMed Senior VP, Research & Development Kari Zimmers said, “It was great being able to represent AxioMed at ISASS. So many people stopped by, excited to see AxioMed moving forward and interested to learn more about the technology.”

The 2017 Conference offered workshops, symposiums, general sessions, a cadaver lab and more. We’re looking forward to many more!

Each year, AAOS hosts an Annual Meeting, offering educational sessions, product exhibitions, self-directed learning, hands-on showcases, and networking opportunities. The Annual Meeting draws over 30,000 participants yearly, and this year, our founder stopped by to check out the buzz.

“As I walk the floor and talk to my peers, I keep receiving feedback that the AxioMed disc is clearly in a different class by itself. It’s rare to see such clear, disruptive technology,” said Dr. Chin.

Post-meeting, Dr. Chin attended the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program alumni reception at the Pool Club. With all orthopedic members of HCORP welcome, the event served as a catch-up of memories and long-time friendships. Dr. Kingsley R. Chin at the HCORP alumni dinner AAOS San Diego
