KHANH HOA (VNS) — As many as 100 international and domestic specialists came together at the sixth International Spine Meeting held in the central province of Khanh Hoa's Nha Trang city on Saturday.

Thirty papers delivered at the conference provided a chance for experts to share experiences, as well as exchange new methods and techniques in spinal treatments and surgeries. Advanced techniques in surgery to cure spinal diseases were also explained at the meeting by experts from the Republic of Korea (RoK), Japan and Germany.

To coincide with the conference, HCM City's Orthopaedic Association (HOA) performed over ten spinal surgeries at Khanh Hoa General Hospital, with plans to teach modern techniques to provincial doctors.

Khanh Hoa General Hospital is among four hospitals with spinal surgery departments in the country. Since 2009, it has treated over 1,100 orthopaedic cases, with a high success rate, thanks to updated techniques frequently taught by domestic and foreign experts. — VNS
