"The two-day advanced spine course is being organised by the Spine Unit of Central Institute of Orthopaedics, VMMC and Safdarjung Hospital. The course will deal with specialised and delicate field in spine surgery that is correction of spinal deformities," said Ramesh Kumar, Director-Professor of Central Institute of Orthopedics in VMMC and Safdarjung Hospital, in a statement.

He added that the event will also showcase live surgeries on kyphosis, that is hunchback correction, by stalwarts in spine surgery.

According to Kumar, Kyphosis or hunchback can be due to congenital, developmental, post- tubercular, post-traumatic causes and due to ankylosing spondylitis.

"If allowed to progress, it (hunchback) can be disabling, as the patient can't walk and see straight. It can also decrease patient lung functional capacity and slowly damage the spinal cord. This will be followed by Cadaveric Workshop in Department of Anatomy on March 26," said Kumar.

Stating that the delegates will be given hands-on training on spine deformity correction, Kumar said: "The course is being conducted under the aegis of Delhi Orthopedic Association and is first of its kind which deals with specialized spine surgeries."
