18th Annual AANS/CNS Joint Section on the Spine and Peripheral Nevers – Orlando
2002 Clinical Science Mayfield Award
Orlando once again proved to be a most popular venue for the Joint Section meeting. Although temperatures dipped for a couple of days, rain held off allowing for a luxurious mix of science and resort relaxation. Disney staff went out of their way to exceed everyone’s expectations. Accommodations and amenities were impeccable.
Over 1000 physicians, family members, and exhibitors enjoyed the Floridean hospitality over the 4-day venue. The meeting provided registrants with an opportunity to attend several courses including a view towards new horizons through Cutting Edge Spine Technologies (Regis Haid and Joseph Alexander), Essentials of Peripheral Nerve Surgery (Rajiv Midha), Fundamental Principles of Spine Surgery (Dan Resnick), and CPT Coding for Spine Surgeons (Greg Przbylski). Over 140 contributed papers were presented in either platform or poster format. Plenty of time was available for sometimes-heated discussions. “What’s New?” sessions were well attended, allowing for state of the art technical updates. Challenging cases were presented over breakfast Friday and Saturday mornings, just to get the days started on the right foot!
