DISC ARTHROPLASTRY SUMMIT 2019
Motion preservation surgery has been shown to improve patients pain and function in FDA supervised clinical investigations as well as in independent patient reported outcome studies for both cervical and lumbar arthroplasty. Yet we need a more in depth and critical look at our cases in practice. The course directors and expert panelists consist of internationally recognized experts in the field of spine arthroplasty surgery.
We will present clinical and radiographic case studies demonstrating the safe expansion of current indications for cervical and lumbar disc replacement. Additionally, we will review the role of complex revision surgery and hybrid fusion combined with arthroplasty surgeries in clinical settings. We will focus on understanding our complications, intending to strive for beer outcomes for our patients. We will include policy-mailing members from various stakeholders to speak about current authorization criteria for both on and off label disc replacement surgeries, as well as reimbursement experts.
