S3P Safety in Spine Surgery Month - April 2021

1st Annual Safety in Spine Surgery Month

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

Introduction

Statistics showing high numbers of medical and surgical errors have recently been highlighted by US government agencies, medical societies, patient groups, and throughout the media. These errors cause unnecessary human suffering, damage the reputation of the medical community, and dramatically increase costs.

It is the belief of the program directors that all major healthcare stakeholders are obligated to invest their expertise and funds to dramatically enhance patient safety. The 1st Annual Safety in Spine Surgery Month will be part of the solution.

Founded and directed by the Safety in Spine Surgery Project (S3P), and chaired by Michael Vitale, MD, the goal of this project is to improve safety in spine surgery by sharing guidelines, techniques, and protocols that make care better, and to share lessons learned from participants who developed specific, successful safety protocols.

This will be accomplished by the partnership of S3P with surgeons, medical professionals, medical device companies, and hospitals.

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.
