19th 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:

You’re invited to 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.


No other event packs such a deep dive into spine technology innovation and investment opportunities as this half-day Summit. We bring together C-suite executives from 10 emerging spine companies, investment bankers, VCs, “strategics,” private investors, and world-renowned spine surgeons for a remarkable afternoon of insights and investment possibilities.

Combine all of the above with the exceptional JW Marriott Resort in Cabo, and we’re confident that you’ll find it to be an outstanding event. We hope that you’ll join us.

Best regards,

Frank Phillips, MD, Chair | Todd Albert, MD, Co-Chair | Alex Vaccaro, MD, PhD, MBA, Co-Chair
