Xu Wang is a consultant for orthopaedics and a PhD candidate from the centre of Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI), Aalborg. Also, he is a spine surgeon at the Department of Orthopaedics of the second Hospital of Jilin University, ChinaHe started his PhD program investigating cervical spine segmental motion pattern in 2013, immediately after completing a 7-year direct medical program in Jilin University.
Dr. Wang is a spine surgeon but also a scientist. His research interests include spine motion pattern, spine biomechanics and scoliosis correction. He first quantified the larger amount of anti-directional motion (40 degrees) is healthy and it further may be developed as a biomarker for evaluation of neck function. This may be applied in the future as a key item to determine the time point of cervical disc replacement.
Dr. Wang holds several memberships in different spine related societies including North American Spine Society (NASS) and the 4th BIT Congress of World Orthopaedics. He was invited to be a reviewer for the topic of Motion Preservation in NASS Summer Meeting 2017and also in NASS Annual Meeting 2017. Invited as a young expert, he gave a nice presentation on cervical regional reposition errors at the 19th Congress of Orthopaedics in Taiyuan.
