History of the ASEAN MISST
The subsequent meetings of the ASEAN MISST would be held in Thailand. The partnership of the Rajavithi Hospital and the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) is responsible for the maiden voyage of the ASEAN MISST across the seas with the Minimally Invasive Surgery Study Group of the PGH Orthopedic Spine Section taking the lead in the organization of the 5th ASEAN MISST Congress.
Organized in 2011, the UP-PGH Ortho Spine MISS Group was created to help propagate minimally invasive spine surgery across the Philippine archipelago which the University Hospital pioneered in 2004.
