Biologic Interventions for Spinal
Pathologies: Stem Cells, Growth
Factors and Novel Therapeutics
Wednesday, July 26 | 7: 30 am - 6: 30 pm
Presented by The Spine Foundation,
this ticketed course presents the latest
in biologics. The field of spinal biologics is rapidly evolving as patients,
researchers, and clinicians are recognizing its potential to treat challenging
painful conditions. While the roles
of both nonoperative and surgical
treatment are relatively well-defined
in the algorithm of spine care, the
indications, risks, and concerns regarding biologics for a variety of spinal
conditions have not been agreed upon.
Because of the differences in regulatory pathways for many of these products, the availability of data is variable
making administrative decision-making difficult. This meeting will bring together exciting minds from academia
and industry to discuss the pertinent
technologies and relevant issues in
biologics use for spinal conditions.

recognition and the implementation of appropriate treatments are
critical for minimizing morbidity
and mortality. This symposium is intended for spine surgeons and other
practitioners who are interested in
learning more about the best practices that have been developed for
the surgical management of lumbar
stenosis with or without instability.
Chair: Mohamad Bydon, MD
A panel of experts will provide an
overview of spinal oncology, both
primary and metastatic tumors in
addition to extradural and intradural tumors. The session will conclude with case debates.
