This workshop was jointly planned by the Chinese Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (CAOS) and The North American Spine Society (NASS).
Professor Feng Li, Director of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Tongii Hospital in Wuhan, China presented on his experience with the BoneScalpel in a wide variety of spinal procedures.

This very closely reflects reported data, papers and experiences from around the world.
The cadaveric workshop hosted more than 100 Chinese surgeons and provided for an entire day of hands-on advanced training with the device highlighting its clinical benefits in a number of different complex spine procedures. In commenting on the program, course Co-Chairman Jeffrey Wang, MD, Chief of the Orthopaedic Spine Service and Co-Director of the USC-University of Southern California Spine Center, and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Neurosurgery, commented, "It was great having Misonix participate in this program. The goal of our international programs are to show novel technologies that can positively influence patient care and provide better outcomes for our patients. Potential game changing technologies like BoneScalpel are important to share with our colleagues around the world and the excitement to try the BoneScalpel in the hands-on lab was great to see."
Scott Ludecker, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing of Misonix, commented, "We could not be more pleased with the turnout for the cadaveric program this year in Shanghai. Providing this many surgeons with advanced training on BoneScalpel in a program such as this is unique and we thank the CAOS and NASS for inclusion in this year's program.

We look forward to participating in future programs as we further expand our rapidly growing base of surgeon customers who have come to appreciate the clinical benefits of our BoneScalpel technology."
