Centre de Chirurgie Endoscopique du Rachis

Overview

The team of the Rachis Endoscopic Surgery Centre is happy and honored each year to receive surgeons from all walks of life and universes.

The participants, spinal surgeons through an orthopaedic or neurosurgical program, come from all over the world to discover endoscopic spinal surgery using the technique developed by Dr. Jean Destandau. Endospine, developed in the 1990s, is constantly renewed, improved and adapted to current surgical evolutions in order to provide the best surgical and clinical care for patients.

It is this state of mind that has led us to offer for 15 years now a theoretical and technical surgical course with live surgeries and dissections in the anatomy laboratory. The key points of the technique are discussed, its advantages and indications. Surgeons can learn or improve according to their level in the anatomy laboratory. All the participants and their companions meet around a dinner to exchange in fruitful cooperation and spend a pleasant moment in a convivial setting.

Overview
From 1983 to 1986 he was Assistant to the Hospitals in the Department of Neurosurgery of Professor Leman where he assured all Neuro-traumatology guards and the neurosurgical follow-up of the traumatic comas in the resuscitation department of Professor Erny. His interest in cranial trauma led him to set up two prospective studies, the first in collaboration with Professor Loiseau on the comitial risk of brain trauma, and the second in collaboration with the functional rehabilitation service of Professors Barat And Mazaux on the long-term development of severe cranial trauma and their social reintegration. He participated in a working group in Marseille (Professor Vigouroux) for the creation of a national data bank in neuro-traumatology. Since 1987 he has carried out a liberal neurochirugical activity. He is particularly interested in the surgical treatment of herniated disc and brain tumors with the same objective: to reduce surgical trauma. This led him to use very precise spatial identification techniques (stereotaxy, neuronavigation) and to develop an endoscopic surgical technique for lumbar disc herniation and other degenerative spinal disorders. Since 1993, He has operated on over 10000 patients with a rate of cure superior to 90% and a post-operatory period of convalescence greatly inferior to the normal. As a result, I have been invited to demonstrate this procedure in many countries including the United States, China, Egypt and Korea.

Dr. Andrea S. It's an old tecnique, well presented and explained. Unfortunatly I don't think it can be considered superior to the microscopy tecnique.

Dr. Simone Z. The course was presented on internet as an international congress about endoscopic spinal surgery but it was not so. It was a course on a particular endoscopic technique, nothing else. It was a bit cheeky to advertise it as such a great event. It was interesting anyway. A bit disappointed for the gala diner, while the wine tasting on the first evening was great.
