Dr. Hamid Abbasi performs 1st OLLIF procedure in South America


Hamid Abbasi, MD, PhD, spine surgeon and chief medical officer of Inspired Spine, has performed the first spine trans-Kambin oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion with arrow cage in South America at Quirurgic-Centro de Cirugia Ambulatoria in Quito, Ecuador. 

OLLIF is a minimally invasive treatment for a variety of spinal conditions, resulting in a smaller incision, less tissue damage, less blood loss and a faster recovery time, according to an April 4 press release. 

Dr. Abbasi has performed several OLLIF surgeries in the U.S. and the Middle East. He has also invented several spinal implants and surgical techniques. 

Centro de Cirugia Ambulatoria is a leading ASC in Ecuador, with state-of-the-art facilities and high marks for patient safety.
