The 48th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research (JSSR)
The 48th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research (JSSR) is organized by Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research (JSSR) and will be held from Apr 18 - 20, 2019 at Pacifico Yokohama, National Convention Hall of Yokohama, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan.
The theme of the 48th Annual Meeting is “Practise your knowledge and technique under daily clinical service” (jijō maren). This phrase is taken from the Ch’uan-hsi Lu (“Record of Instructions”) recording the thought of Wang Yang-Ming. He taught that it was insufficient to discipline oneself by sitting in meditation and calming one’s own heart; rather, it was important to seek the way to cultivate one’s talents by working in society. For us as doctors, too, it is not enough to sit at our desks voraciously reading medical textbooks to acquire greater knowledge; it is important to cultivate our skills in medical science and treatment by caring for actual patients. In this process, if diagnoses or treatment methods are inadequate, we must go back to basic research to ascertain the truth, then carry this back into clinical practice to bring its benefits to patients. Our subtheme is “Ask what you can do for spinal disorders.” Rather than simply employing tests and therapeutic methods discovered by other doctors or researchers, a spirit of cultivating our own skills to contribute to the development of spinal and spinal cord medicine by discovering or devising our own medical techniques is essential. A mountain of difficult problems in spinal and spinal cord medicine remain to be tackled, and I hope we can go on to solve them in this spirit.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
