Patient Experience Trends in Spine Businesses

Goals

To obtain trends in patient experience for spine businesses in the US with a view to developing editorial and public relations opportunities for physicians. These trends should include technology available to physicians, technology available to patients, appointment-making options, doctor follow-ups, front-office experiences, and physical vs. virtual appointments.

Early Findings

Some trends observed in the spine business include the use of PEEK-carbon fiber screw-rod constructs, fenestrated screws, pedicle screw systems, image guidance, percutaneous pedicle screws and robots. These trends are among the technological advances being made in science that are impacting the medical field and more specifically the spine surgeries industry.
