28th Griboi Meeting, an Interdisciplinary Research Conference on Image guided spine therapy, Biomaterials and Interventional implants, Los Angeles, California, USA, March 17, 2018

Griboi 2018 will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018 in Los Angeles, California in conjunction with the start of the 2018 SIR Annual Scientific Meeting which will be held March 17-23. The intention of colocation with SIR2018 is to widen the audience of Griboi and to make travel to the meeting more convenient for our attendees. It is part of our mission to mentor and develop, residents, fellows, and SIR members in skills in medical device development. To further this aim, the first 50 IR residents and fellows who register for Griboi 2018 can register for FREE.

The Griboi is an international society dedicated to research and education in the field of bone and biomaterials, particularly focused on Spine intervention in benign and malignant disease. For every topic and session, we will blend the current and future practice with the best current research. North American and International experts will interactively discuss and debate:

  • New techniques in spine imaging
  • Novel vertebral interventions in benign disease and the current status of trials
  • Use of vertebral interventions to relieve pain in malignant disease
  • Regenerative medicine and how to integrate Stem Cells and the use of PRP into practice
  • Disc interventions and where does Ozone stand
  • Spine practice building
  • European advancements that the US does not have and the latest research in biomaterials from around the world
  • Current status of 3D printing
  • Role of biopsy in benign malignant and infected tissue
  • And much more…
