World Spine Care Holds First Health Conference in Botswana

International delegates came together as World Spine Care (WSC) held its first health conference in Mahalapye, Botswana in April.

Founder Dr. Scott Haldeman, Clinical Director Dr. Geoff Outerbridge, Vice President Dr. Margareta Nordin, staff and supporters of WSC were joined by more than 105 delegates from among health professions and government organizations in a daylong conference that marked the first for the organization and perhaps the largest of its kind in the history of Botswana.

Dr. Shenaaz El-Halabi, deputy permanent secretary to the government of Botswana, opened the conference and was followed by Dr. Kunal Bose, superintendent of the Mahalapye District Hospital, and a video statement by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and member of WSC's advisory council.

During the conference, leading authorities from the U.S., Canada, Switzerland, Turkey, Australia and South Africa shared reports of findings from research undertaken by WSC and lectured on the current evidence-based approach to people with spinal disorders. The speakers presented a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that included screening for serious disease, diagnosis and both nonsurgical and surgical options.

In addition to their presentations, the surgical team assessed the facilities in nearby hospitals. The team consisted of Dr. Christian Etter, past president and founder of the Swiss Spine Institute; Dr. Emre Acaroglu, chief of orthopaedic spine care with Turkey's Ankara Spine Center; Dr. Norman Fisher-Jeffes, past president of the Society of Neurosurgeons of South Africa; and Dr. Lindsey Rowe, associate professor in radiology, School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Newcastle and adjunct professor, Northwestern Health Sciences University and Murdoch University.

Since founding World Spine Care, Dr. Haldeman has attracted the support and assistance of health care leaders from all over the world, and has opened two clinics in Botswana and prepared a third in the Ranthambhore area of eastern Rajasthan, India. Additional clinics are being considered in Tanzania and the Dominican Republic.
