Dr. Rahman recently served as a faculty member at the 3rd Annual Global Spine Outreach Spinal Deformity Symposium in Mexico City, Mexico. Chaired by Greg Mundis, Jr., MD, Anthony Rinella, MD, Mauricio Montalvo, MD and Enrique Rosales, MD, the meeting focused on the diagnosis and surgical management of commonly-seen spinal deformity, including the latest treatment options and avoiding complications.
In his presentation, Osteotomies to Restore Sagittal Balance, Dr. Rahman spoke about the importance of evaluating spino-pelvic parameters in the context of global alignment. He emphasized the importance of choosing the correct osteotomy for each patient given the inherent risk of osteotomies—especially as the complexity increases. Dr. Rahman also explored the factors important to consider for choosing the osteotomy level.
Ra’Kerry Rahman, MD was delighted to share the stage with other esteemed leaders in the spinal deformity arena, including Behrooz Akbarnia, MD, Lawrence Lenke, MD and Gregory Mundis Jr., MD. Together, they explored advancements in spinal deformity treatment.
The week of Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 2015, Dr. Rahman attended the Scoliosis Research Foundation’s Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. This 50th anniversary annual meeting focused on the organization’s mission and goals of fostering the optimal care of all patients with spinal deformities. During this meeting, more than 125 papers were presented on a variety of spine-related topics, such as: adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, growing spine, kyphosis, adult deformity, trauma, neuromuscular scoliosis and more.
