The first Training Grant in Spine’s Surgery came to an en.

25 September, 2015

Dr. Henry Obinna has been the first doctor that took part in the Clavel’s Foundation Training Grants.
A few weeks ago he put an end to his stay of Training for Spine Surgery in the Hospital Quirón of Barcelona.
Dr. Obinna valued successfully the opportunity he received. According to his own words “ I could get familiar and stronger in such surgeries like anterior cervical approach, anterior lumbar approach, that require vascular mobilization in some particular cases. I’ve also gotten familiar with some arthroplasty disc techniques and anterior rhizotomy. I got an explanation of all my issues with intra/post surgery.
I’m really thankful with Fundación Clavel for giving me such an opportunity..
