The University of Toronto Spine Program (local Host)

The University of Toronto Spine Program provides an outstanding framework for citywide collaboration in spine clinical training, research, fellowship and resident education, advocacy, and strategic planning. The Program offers a robust academic program including a series of visiting professorship, annual academic spine Day “SpineFEST”, quarterly citywide Spine Rounds and Journal Clubs.

In response to an external review in 2007 supported by the U of T Department of Surgery, the Program was established and integrated within the Divisions of Neurosurgery and Division of Orthopaedics Surgery in 2009 to evolve as an internationally recognized entity poised to enhance clinical care, research, and education. Since its inception, the program has focused on collaboration, innovation, education, and research. The Program exhibits an important academic platform incorporating spinal surgery units and research programs across the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network “TAHSN”, particularly in the main hospitals: Toronto Western Hospital; Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre; Saint Michael’s Hospital; and the Hospital for Sick Children.

Globally, in addition to our strong affiliation with our national spine societies and health networks including the Canadian Spine Society, the program has also been building a robust relationships with international spine research societies such as the AO Spine, Cervical Spine Research Society, Scoliosis Research Society, and International Neurotrauma Society.

Under the leadership of Dr Michael Fehlings, professor of Neurosurgery, and Dr Albert Yee, Professor of Orthpaedic Surgery, Co-Directors, the Program brings together a broad interdisciplinary array of clinicians, researchers, and educators focused on disorders of the spine and spinal cord. Our Program’s unique cohort draws 30 multidisciplinary membership, spanning the continuum from bench to bedside and community, overarching neurosurgery, orthpaedic surgery, paediatric surgery, oncology, radiology, physical and occupational therapy, biomaterial and biomedical engineering, laboratory medicine and pathobiology, physiatry, and pain management.

In teaching and education, the program continues to focus on training and educating spine fellows and residents. We have trained over 100 worldwide spine fellows. The program provides surgical skills courses chaired by Dr Stephen Lewis and Dr Eric Massicotte targeting both surgeons in-training and surgeons in-practice. A Mock Oral on Spine course co-chaired by Drs Fehlings and Yee aims to prep our graduating residents for their Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons examinations. The program offers quarterly visiting professorship and annual SpineFEST to provide educational and professional networking opportunities to exchange international perspectives on research and operative and non-operative treatment of spine disorder. This year, SpineFEST is featuring scoliosis to highlight surgical treatments and optimal patient care. SpineFEST continues to present ongoing citywide clinical and preclinical research projects and look into clinical trial and emerging outcome measures.

In clinical care and research, the program continues to foster collaborative efforts in facilitating multi-centre clinical trials and data sharing agreements.. Among of which is the Riluzole in Spinal Cord Injury Study “RISCIS” led by Dr Fehlings and principally sponsored by AO Spine North America.

In patient care advocacy and global efforts, the Program has made an impact on several levels. Drs Fehlings and Rampersaud have been successful in provincial initiatives to enhance access to care and service delivery for patients with acute and chronic spine conditions. Drs Fehlings and Yee has been actively working with AO Spine NA to broadly disseminate knowledge gained from our national competency - based fellowship training curricula. The Program, jointly with the AO Spine, spearheaded the development and establishment of the Guidelines for Acute Spinal Cord Injury and Guideline of Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy. Dr Fehlings’ efforts in bringing in multiple international congresses to Toronto have contributed to leveraging our program’s global advocacy and outreach efforts.

The UofT Spine Program has evolved over many years to become an international dominant spine care force. Shortly after his visit to Toronto, Professor Daniel Riew, AO Spine Research Commission Chair and former Congress Chairperson, described the University of Toronto Spine Program as “the premier research and educational program for spine in the world”.

Finally, we welcome the Global Spine Congress to Toronto and we look forward to hosting such a successful and joyful event!

Ziehm Imaging was founded in Nuremberg in 1972 and is specialized in the development, production and global marketing of mobile X-ray-based imaging solutions (C-arms).
In 2006, Ziehm Imaging launched the first fully digital, mobile C-arm in the world, with a flat-panel detector that provides distortion-free, high-contrast and highly dynamic images with four times more shades of gray compared to analogue image intensifiers. Today, more than 10 years later, Ziehm Imaging has enhanced the proven flat-panel with CMOS, the latest detector technology for excellent image quality. Further, Advanced Active Cooling technology ensures significantly longer fluoroscopy time with higher image quality during lengthy surgery and prevents overheating of the generator. The open interface Ziehm NaviPort allows a flexible integration of navigation systems by various manufacturers and enables the user to be up to date at any time.
