Webinar: The Elderly & Degenerative Spine – Modern Interventions & Preventions

Strength and conditioning is often associated with younger patients, but it is vitally important for elderly patients too. As our spine goes through normal time-related and pathological changes, the compensatory stability and flexibility we require becomes more essential. Sometimes these fail and intervention is required to either aid physical therapy or to structurally alter the anatomy and biomechanics. This interactive webinar, with Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr Alexander Montgomery, looks at these aspects, as well as modern day advances, and the future of spine intervention.


By examining what happens in the older degenerative spine, such as the gradual loss of normal structure and function, we will be able to understand how to spot the signs and help treat your patients. We will be discussing the signs and symptoms of specific conditions, such as Stenosis and Spondylolisthesis, and their treatment algorithms. It is also crucial not to miss Myelopathy so we will be examining the red flags to look out for and how to identify when surgery is urgently needed. Mr Montgomery will be explaining how rehabilitation can improve spinal deformities, and when a patient should be considered for referral.


Lastly, delving into prevention methods, we will be exploring holistic lifestyle changes that your patients can make, such as quitting smoking to decrease the risk of disc desiccation. There are currently intervention techniques being developed to restore or manage the spine, and Mr Montgomery will be expanding on the latest research in the field and where the future of spinal interventions is heading.


We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' closer to the time.

Speaker

Alexander Montgomery

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon | London

Mr Montgomery is Clinical Lead for Spinal Surgery at The Royal London Hospital (Barts Health) where he has led the department since setting up the Spinal Unit at the new hospital in 2012. It is now the largest spinal trauma unit in the UK, and covers a population of two million people for elective surgery alone. Mr Montgomery's team at The Royal London was the first in the UK to use the robotic assisted arm in spinal surgery.

The surgery Mr Montgomery performs involves using microscopes, and minimally invasive techniques. He performs anterior, posterior and lateral minimal access approaches for lumbar surgery, anterior and posterior cervical surgery, and complex deformity cases. 

He regularly treats city workers, as well as amateur and elite athletes. He has treated Olympic gold medalists, professional boxing champions, international rugby players, team sky cyclists, as well as patients with degenerative and complex conditions. 

Mr Montgomery is an honorary senior lecturer at Queen Mary University, and has presented across the globe from the USA to Europe and Australasia. He has regularly been faculty for AO Spine Middle East, and chaired a conference on minimal access surgery in Kuwait. He won the best presentation poster at the International Society for Study of the Lumbar Spine, and has featured in Spine News International. He was recently invited to the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia to present two spinal studies in a global symposium. He has had three systematic reviews in spinal surgery accepted for publication this year.
