Mr. Walter Eisner, Senior Reporter for Orthopedics This Week, plans to talk about what has been written by about spine over the last year. He is currently working on a feature about the last two hundred years of surgery and will quote Atul Gawande, M.D., M.P.H. (in his opinion, the best medical writer in America). Dr. Gawande wrote this for the current 200th Anniversary Issue of The New England Journal of Medicine. It totally speaks to what we are pioneering.
