Dr. Igor DeCastro recently served as a Guest Lecturer for the 7th Annual Walter Dandy Society Meeting held in Mexico. His presentation gave insight into the controversies surrounding the treatment of Thoracolumbar Burst Fractures. These fractures, which occur in the thoracic and lumbar spine levels, are often the result of traumatic injury. The Walter Dandy Neurosurgical Society, created in 2011, was developed to become a forum for neurological surgeons, who by working collaboratively can enhance the education of both neurosurgical residents and fully-trained neurosurgeons internationally.
