The State of Spine Surgery Think Tank (formerly The Cabo Meeting) is not your typical “lectures and exhibits” meeting. In fact it is refreshingly different. The program is light on lectures, but heavy on lively discussion. It’s your chance to ask the questions that you care about, and to present your own insights. The topics focus on the here and now, rather than on academic research that might be relevant in 10 years.
Please join us in Napa in 2018 at the luxurious Silverado Resort for an informative and insightful program of CME for practicing spine surgeons. The 2018 meeting will feature a forum for the discussion of issues unique to those of Korean and Korean-American heritage. It will also be an exceptional opportunity for leisure time with colleagues, friends, and family.
COURSE CHAIRMEN: Todd Milbrandt, MD and Jeffrey Sawyer, MD
