Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council, 30th Anniversary
Meeting (November 21, 2016)
(courtesy of PHC4)

Dr. Nash reviews one of PHC4’s key reports on spinal fusion surgeries,
a key newspaper article questioning the reasons for disparities in
treatment in different parts of Pennsylvania, and offers his own personal
reflections on finding a spinal fusion surgeon in the “data-free
environment” of 2002—a marked contrast to today.
