Dr John Ebnezar was instrumentalin organising the first Annual Conference of the NSSA at Bangalore. When he mooted this idea to Dr Ramani,he readily agreed and he made him the chairman of this

singer and they conducted a Music Program paying tribute to the Late Shammi Kapoor.

International audiences and in fact they suggessted that this talk should have been kept in the Inaugural Function of the Confernece and not
in a sscientific program as such was the wide influence of the talk on everyone. It highlighted the need for everyone to keep their back fit and not
rush to the sugeons at the last minute to fix and mend their backs.His other talk that was widely acclaimed was on the Lumbar Disc Surgeries, the past,present andfuture.

SPINE 2012 - INTERNATIONAL CONFERFENCE OF NSSA (NEUROSPINAL SURGEONS ASSOCIATION).
(Back to top Section)
This was held from 13th to 16th September 2012
at Hotel Le Royal Meridian, Chennai. Dr John Ebnezar delivered a Talk on RECENT ADVANCES IN THE TREATMENT OF CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS.
This is a very common problem among global public. The treatmebt for this degenerative condition is far from satisfactory. The Conservative
Treatment done is inadequate and the recommended surgical treatment like discectomy,corpectomy,fusion and cervical disc replacement
are very aggressive surgical treatment methods. And moreover thanks to the present day stressful life styles among young generations,
cervical spondylosis has started showing up in very young population. In this group none of the treatment methods of the conventional
diseases are effective. Dr John Ebnezar's NECK REHAB PROGRAM is an excellent treatment concept not only in younger generations but
in all varieties of cervical spondylosis. This talk was very greatly appreciated by all the neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons and it was
said that this treatment concept of Dr John Ebnezar is certainly need of the hour and needs to be popularised widely all over the country.
