"Spinal Biologics - Key Areas of Promising Research and Innovation" - Laura Dyrda
Andrew Hecht, MD, chief of spine surgery at the Mount Sinai Health System, outlines the key trends and big opportunities in the spine device space moving forward. “The biggest innovations in spine will continue to grow out of biological solutions to spine disorders. Some of the most promising avenues of research involve the reversal of disc degeneration and annular repair. The disc represents a unique therapeutic target for anti-catabolic and pro-anabolic solutions. Annular repair also represents an area of increased interest and therapeutic potential for both post-discectomy repair and annular disruptions,” said Dr. Hecht.
