Description

Come join us for the inaugural SpineFirst Symposium! This interdisciplinary symposium will focus on supporting clinicians in understanding the pathways to care for patients through acute and chronic spine episodes.

The sessions will support the audience in the evaluation and diagnosis of neck and back pain or symptomatology. It will explore the roles that multidisciplinary partners have in the evaluation of patients, and critical elements of care coordination to facilitate a patient-centered treatment regimen. The content will cover non-surgical treatment options and how best to support and evaluate surgical candidates.

The symposium will provide an educational opportunity for professionals focusing on the medical management and rehabilitative treatment interventions. Clinical faculty for the event include: Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates (CNSA) surgeons; CNSA and Atrium Health Musculoskeletal Institute physiatrists; and so many more multidisciplinary partners!
