About Us

This "Think Tank" explores current and controversial issues in spinal care with extensive discussion and interaction between the outstanding faculty, participants, and industry. Surgeons report on their experiences, are free to debate each other, challenge industry scientists and focus on the potential benefits and risks for their patients. In addition to clinical discussions, there are symposia dealing with many of the political-economic issues facing the spine community.

No other area of musculoskeletal care is as unsettled as spine care, and the “Cabo Meeting” has gained a reputation as one of the most provocative, innovative and relevant educational gatherings of spine surgeons and all stakeholders in spine care.
