Dr. Tender teaches area surgeons techniques of minimally invasive spine surgery

In October, Dr. Gabriel Tender partnered with spine instrumentation company Stryker, to provide a training course in the use of new instrumentation techniques that allow spinal fusion operations to be done through much smaller incisions. Dr. Tender originally designed and began offering the course several years ago for the residents in the LSU training program, but it has grown each year, and this year several physicians from throughout the region and nearby states attended as well.

If you have heard about minimally invasive spine surgery, and have questions that you would like to ask Dr. Tender, please, send them in!
