"If you do not know where you are headed, your destination does not matter."
Peter Drucker

That nuclear energy could well be used to destroy humanity shows the graveness of the question: “Does science have ethical responsibilities?" So, like other treatments, surgery should benefit all of humanity.

This belief has led to a key development for all surgical treatments whose mottos no more serve the main philosophy behind minimally invasive surgery. Those involved in surgical treatment should be concerned with ensuring minimal invasiveness with less trauma rather than simply smaller incisions. The use of endoscopic surgery is inevitable to that end. The mission of the International Society for Minimal Intervention in Spinal Surgery (ISMISS), the scientific knowledge sharing platform enabling surgeons to meet and follow the latest trends in surgery, continues with this congress.

In saying “If you do not where you are headed, your destination does not matter”, Peter Drucker pointedly emphasizes that a prudent approach is required to the introduction of surgical innovations, and also to keep surgery in line with contemporary technologies.

While it seems to be in conflict with classic surgery, endoscopic spinal surgery is sure to open new horizons.

We call on all our colleagues to welcome this development and get involved in knowledge sharing on our platform.
