Contact The Anand Spine Group at (310) 423-9779 to make an appointment to see if you are eligible.
The Anand Spine Group takes great pride in sharing the latest news in minimally invasive spine surgery. Dr. Anand has been on multiple medias over the years talking about latest technology and techniques in spine surgery. He is considered the expert in minimally invasive spine care and is leading the way in minimally invasive spine deformity correction. He loves to educate and provide the latest up to date technology that is available.
It is through the Foundation for Research and Education in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (FREMISS) that global aid is provided. The FREMISS Global Aid program is designed to benefit not only surgeons, but also patients in under privileged regions of the world. With your support, we can expand our research, strengthen our programs and improve the future of spinal care to patients around the world.
Additionally, FREMISS supports several educational opportunities for spine surgeons. The Comprehensive Minimally Invasive & Outpatient Spine Surgery Fellowship is an academic experience offered to spine surgeons who desire to train in minimally invasive techniques with Dr. Anand and conduct research. Upon graduation, fellows are encouraged to take their knowledge into various communities around the country. The Visiting Surgeon Program welcomes spine surgeons from around the world to spend time with Dr. Anand in clinic and in the operating room to better understand the philosophy and application of minimally invasive and outpatient techniques.
Thank you for your generosity which allows us to continue our mission.
