Demystifying Slipped Discs

Slipped discs, medically termed as herniated or prolapsed discs, present a multifaceted challenge in clinical practice. Understanding the underlying anatomy, pathophysiology, and diagnostic modalities is paramount for accurate identification and effective management.

In this webinar, our distinguished panel of experts will delve into the intricate nuances of slipped discs, elucidating the latest advancements in diagnostic techniques such as MRI imaging and electromyography. Moreover, we will discuss the spectrum of treatment modalities, ranging from conservative measures to surgical interventions, providing attendees with a comprehensive understanding of therapeutic options tailored to individual patient needs.

Our main presenter is Dr. Dave Anthony G. Dizon, who is an attending orthopedic surgeon from the Division of Spine Surgery of the UP-PGH Department of Orthopedics, and our reactor is Dr. Jennifer Marie J. Yang, who is an attending specialist from the UP-PGH Department of Rehabilitation Medicine.

As frontline healthcare warriors, your proficiency in managing slipped disc cases directly impacts patient outcomes and quality of life. We hope to empower you to deliver optimal care to your patients afflicted with this debilitating condition.
