“Most patients go to their ‘spine doc’ for pain alleviation… not neuro deficit, not deformity, not instability. If we fail to steward and oversee the entire field of spine then we will become dinosaurs like some other specialties have become. The issue of untrained practitioners treating without training will grow… this underlines the importance of ISASS for spine surgeons by surgeons.”

Morgan Lorio, MD
