Welcome Message from the President of the 22nd JASMISS
Koichi Sairyo, MD and PhD
Congress President of 22nd JASMISS
Professor and Chairman,
Department of Orthopedics,
This year, Tokushima University will host the 22nd Japanese Society of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (JASMISS) in Takamatsu City, November 28th and 29th. As a congress president, I would like to have some greeting to all of participants.
The JAMISS is a scientific, educational and all-Japan society. The annual meeting would cover the issues on any kinds of minimally invasive surgeries such as endoscopic surgery, motion preservation, stabilization, innovative technologies, biologics as well as basic science related to the MISS.
The “THEME” of this meeting is “Determination: Leading the spine surgery”.
To be an expert of the MISS, we need the strong “DETERMINATION”. After overcoming the steep learning-curve, one can be a master of the MISS. To be the master and expert with highest skill and highest mind, one needs hard work and hard efforts; thus, I should stay that “Master of the minimally invasive spine surgery would be a master of the spine surgery”.
During the meeting, we prepare invited lectures, leaders lectures, the determination lectures, the determination symposium and special lectures.
The venue is Takamatsu city, Kagawa prefecture in Shikoku Island where there is a direct access with airplane from Tokyo, and Asian countries. Please attend this meeting and enjoy fruitful scientific discussion on MISS and special food in the Shikoku Island.
See you soon.
