Morgan Lorio, MD Highlights ISASS’ Advocacy Work

Aurora, Ill. – November 21, 2017 – Chair of the ISASS Coding & Reimbursement Task Force and winner of the 2017 ISASS Distinguished Service Award, Morgan Lorio, MD highlights the Society’s advocacy work over the past year.

“ISASS’ advocacy action takes many forms across multiple forums, but at the most basic level, our number one goal is to support spine surgeons and spine patients,” Lorio said. “We do this through education—educating our members on the most pressing issues facing our practice, educating regulators on the impact of regulations on the surgeon/patient relationship, and educating payers with the most up-to-date literature on surgical spine procedures and technologies.”

Since taking the helm of ISASS in April 2017, ISASS President Jeffrey Goldstein, MD has focused on expanding the Society’s advocacy efforts. “ISASS is well known for its high-quality educational courses and meetings,” Goldstein said, “but our members also benefit from our tireless advocacy work with regulators and payers to ensure our patients have access to the best surgical spine care.”

Here are just a few examples of ISASS’ advocacy at work over the past year:

“There is never a shortage of issues to address,” Lorio said, “and we are always looking for surgeons who want to contribute to ISASS’ advocacy efforts particularly related to coding, coverage, reimbursement and regulatory matters.” If you are interested in becoming a member of ISASS or becoming more involved in the Society, please email
