S3P Safety in Spine Surgery Summit

5th Annual Safety in Spine Surgery Summit

ATTENTION:

The NYP Leadership and Dr. Vitale have made the difficult decision to cancel the 5th Annual Safety in Spine Surgery Summit. This is due to both hospital policies as well as following the CDC current guidelines to limit gatherings of 25 or more people.  Many of our faculty are subject to restrictions on travel and business conferences as well due to COVID-19.

We are still committed to communicating the Safety in Spine Surgery Summit message worldwide.  We are working on filming some of the key content to be made available on-line as a CME module. More details will be available soon, but it will likely be later this spring that those videos are available at the Safety in Spine Surgery website.

If you have already registered for the course, please contact us regarding your refund options and cancel any hotel and travel arrangements.

CHAIR: Michael G. Vitale, MD, MPH | CO-CHAIRS: John M. Flynn, MD; Roger Härtl, MD;
Rajiv K. Sethi, MD

First Do No Harm! You’re invited to attend The Safety in Spine Surgery Summit to learn about the numerous safety and quality advances being made in the field. During one day of sessions, you’ll hear from a diverse faculty about tips and tools that can help us all improve patient care.
