18th Annual State of Spine Surgery Think Tank
Chair: Frank Phillips, MD
Co-Chairs: Todd Albert, MD; Alex Vaccaro, MD, PhD, MBA
Directors: Hyun Bae, MD; Greg Mundis Jr., MD; Kris Radcliff, MD
Location: JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa | San José del Cabo

Dear Colleagues:

Save the date! Join us for a spine surgery meeting like no other. The State of Spine Surgery Think Tank 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. How can you adapt to changes in healthcare? Which new technologies and techniques merit your attention? What tips can improve your outcomes?
  • The meeting creates remarkable camaraderie among participants, including surgeons, and leaders from device companies and healthcare systems.


Join us on June 28th for a ½ day pre-meeting Summit that will provide a deep dive into the future management of spinal conditions with an emphasis on innovative technologies. We’ll bring together the leading experts and opinion leaders in this space, including executives of companies developing and commercializing novel technologies, VCs, investment bankers, “Strategics,” private investors, and world-renowned spine surgeons and innovators.

Best regards,

Frank Phillips, MD, Meeting Chairman
Todd Albert, MD, Meeting Co-Chair
Alex Vaccaro, MD, PhD, Meeting Co-Chair
