The Medical & Scientific Board

We have convened an outstanding Medical and Scientific Board comprising the nation’s top spine surgeons, all recognized leaders in the field. Members of our Board also serve in top leadership roles at the most prestigious professional societies. These world-renowned experts are pioneers in the most important research and innovations in spinal health care.

We have created Spine-Talks® to bring unparalleled world-class spine health expertise to you, wherever you are. Featuring our Medical & Scientific Board, Spine-Talks answers real patient questions, shares information about exciting new advances in spinal treatment, and provides actionable advice to help you make more informed choices about your spine health.

In addition to Spine-Talks, read expert perspectives from Members of the Board in our quarterly Spine Health Journal.
