The North American Spine Society, Oct. 25-29

Doctor’s Lounge—November 1, 2017

Doctor’s Lounge featured HSS internist Carol A. Mancuso, MD, FACP in a roundup article about studies presented at the North American Spine Society 32nd Annual Meeting.

"While it is hardly surprising that spine surgeons are better able to accurately predict surgical outcomes, it is the degree to which the predictions diverged that is significant. Evidently, surgeons and patients need to do a better job of working together to candidly communicate realistic expectations throughout the preoperative and postoperative processes," said Dr. Mancuso.
