Course Description and Statement of Need
The State-of-the-Art Spine Care conference will focus on up to the moment information on the management of spine patients for the primary care and first contact providers.  The faculty will be comprised of recognized spine specialists who will present lectures focusing on evaluation and conservative treatment of spinal problems, imaging and techniques available for assistance in diagnosis of a spine problem, pain management, current spine techniques and technologies, and management of the pre and post-surgical spine patient. Participants will have several opportunities for discussion and are encouraged to join faculty for discussions and debates regarding all topics.
