Five spine surgeons share best practices for sharpening one’s skill set and remaining on the cutting-edge of spine care.
Ask Spine Surgeons is a weekly series of questions posed to spine surgeons around the country about clinical, business and policy issues affecting spine care. We invite all spine surgeon and specialist responses.
Next week’s question: What innovations would you like to see in the pain management arena to improve spine surgery outcomes?
Issada Thongtrangan, MD. Orthopedic Spine and Neurosurgeon at Minimally Invasive Spine (Phoenix):I always keep an open mind for new technologies that can improve patient outcomes. I then do my own research and filter the data, which can be biased, and it is overwhelming at times to see what make senses and what doesn’t.
