Experts from academia and industry will discuss the pertinent technologies and relevant issues in biologics use for spinal conditions in this comprehensive one-day program in Chicago. Spinal biologics is rapidly evolving and being recognized for its potential to treat challenging painful conditions. However, 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 program will provide spine professionals with the latest updates for 2023 on the use of biologics for spinal conditions.

This is a non-CME event.
