ESPINEA® – Endoscopic Spine Academy | Hands-On Workshop Impressions

General Information

Endo-Facet-SI-Discogenic Pain Management

This workshop provides profound theoretical and practical knowledge on endoscopic pain therapy.

  • Endoscopic facet and sacroiliac joint treatment (MultiZYTE® Facet and MultiZYTE® Sacroiliac)
  • Interventional lumbar nucleus therapy (intENTS®)
  • Application and options of an electromagnetic navigation system (Intracs® em)

Target Group

Surgeons and pain therapists with experience in spinal therapy.

Please note:

The theoretical and practical knowledge of this course can be trained, if previously requested, during any Workshop for Endo-Deherniation/Decompression Management up to Endo-(Stenotic) Decompression.

Cervical facet treatment can be covered in the advanced Workshop Endo-(Stenotic) Decompression and Stabilization upon request.

360° Endo-Deherniation/Decompression Management up to 360° Endo-(Stenotic) Decompression

This workshop provides profound theoretical and practical knowledge on endoscopic deherniation/decompression and on endoscopic bony decompression. If desired, endoscopic facet and sacroiliac joint therapy can also be addressed.

  • Transforaminal and interlaminar endoscopic access to the spinal canal for the treatment of lumbar disc herniations and foraminal as well as lateral recess stenosis (TESSYS®, iLESSYS® Pro and iLESSYS® Delta systems)
  • Application and options of an electromagnetic navigation system (Intracs® em)
  • Upon request: Endoscopic Facet-SI-Discogenic Pain Management facet joint and sacroiliac joint treatment

Target Group

Surgeons from various disciplines, with little or no experience in endoscopic spine therapy/spine surgery and interest in learning the latest techniques in minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery – focus on the lumbar spine.

This workshop is set up for surgeons; pain therapists must meet certain requirements.

360° Endo-(Stenotic) Decompression and Stabilization

This workshop provides profound theoretical and practical knowledge on endoscopic decompression of the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine as well as minimally-invasive stabilization.

  • Transforaminal and interlaminar access for decompression of the lumbar spine (migrated disc herniations, foraminal, lateral recess stenosis) and central herniations of the lumbar and thoracic spine (TESSYS®, TESSYS® Thx, iLESSYS® Pro and iLESSYS® Delta)
  • Endoscopically assisted stabilization with a percutaneous screw-rod sytem and implantation of cages with over-the-wire technique (Percusys® Plus and EndoLIF®)
  • Application and options of an electromagnetic navigation system (Intracs® em)
  • Upon request: Cervical decompression (CESSYS® Dorsal and CESSYS® Ventral) and treatment of the cervical facet joints (MultiZYTE® Facet Cervical)

Target Group

Surgeons from various disciplines experienced in endoscopic transforaminal and interlaminar access who want to expand the range of indications.

For surgeons only

These upgrade events are designed and tailored to support surgeons who want to take their first deepening steps in endoscopy. At the events, we provide an overview of endoscopy and break down each surgeon‘s career path to show them how they can advance endoscopically.

Three participants, as well as an ESPINEA® faculty member, will discuss new techniques and case reports, both from the portfolios of all attendees, to exchange the experiences in the operating room. Thus, allowing us to see where each surgeon is in their endoscopy career and how they can overcome any obstacles or uncertainties. With the guidance from a seasoned veteran, everything is possible.

Target Group

Surgeons experienced in endoscopic procedures who want to expand their range of indications. Appointments can be made individually and can serve as preparation for a subsequent course at a higher level.

Please note:
Own images and case reports are mandatory.
Only three participants per upgrade workshop. All participants need to have endoscopic experience.

During the workshop, participants will learn to plan and perform proper endoscopic access to the spine. The treatment of herniated discs and the performance of bony decompression will also be trained. Endoscopic pain treatment and stabilization options will be demonstrated and practiced in specific courses.

In all courses the electromagnetic navigation system Intracs® em is demonstrated and applied.
