June 17, 2023

Dr. Morgenstern taught as an international faculty in an international hands-on workshop for anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) in geneva, Switzerland. Senior and experienced surgeons came from all over the world (USA, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, United Kingdom, etc.) to join this workshop and learn the ALIF technique from expert spine surgeons like Dr. Morgenstern. The anterior approach to the spine allows placing interbody spacer into the disk with a small skin incision on the patient’s belly. Dr. Morgenstern is an international expert in this complex surgical technique that requires special skills and a lot of experience to be safely done. The advantages of ALIF are that patients recover very quickly after surgery and usually are discharged in less than 24 hours after surgery.
