Dr. Haines Featured As Topic-Expert At Annual Meeting Of The Cervical Spine Research Society

Authored by Dr. Colin Haines, MD, FACS. December 6, 2016

Dr. Haines recently presented research outcomes at the 44th annual meeting of the Cervical Spine Research Society, held in Toronto, Canada, December 1-3, 2016. The society is the largest international research group dedicated to the cervical spine.

He presented the results of current cervical spine research data including the first study that has compared spinal fusion versus motion-preserving surgery for cervical myelopathy, or compression of the spinal cord in the neck, with respect to cost and clinical outcomes. His research shows that in select patients, motion preserving neck surgery may be a preferred option over spinal fusion.

Dr. Haines, along with this esteemed group of presenters, discussed new developments and techniques related to treatment of the cervical spine, and fostered research concerning the diagnosis and treatment of cervical spine injury and disease.
