State of Spine 2020 Think Tank Conference

Canceled: The 17th Annual: State of Spine Surgery Think Tank,<br />Formerly Known As The Cabo Meeting

ATTENTION:

After careful consideration, the decision has been made to cancel the 17th Annual State of Spine Surgery Think Tank.

CHAIRMEN: Frank Phillips, MD; Todd Albert, MD; Alex Vaccaro, MD, PhD

PROGRAM DIRECTORS: Hyun Bae, MD; Greg Mundis, MD; and Kris Radcliff, MD

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. The meeting creates remarkable camaraderie among participants, including surgeons, and leaders from device companies and healthcare systems.

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.

Spine surgeons, members of spine surgery teams, OR directors, hospital executives, and more will benefit from this program, and most importantly, so will all of our patients.

An ESSENTIAL program for:

  • Spine surgeons
