"SpineMark's concept of integrating clinical research into a global network of centers of excellence resembles the vision I have for my facilities in Germany," said Bertagnoli. "We share a dedication to ensuring that patients can receive quality care. I look forward to contributing to the creation of a global spinal research network through SpineMark's international partnerships."
Bertagnoli graduated in 1984 from the University of Vienna, Austria, and worked at emergency hospitals in Vienna and Linz before moving to the German Center of Spine Surgery in Bad Wildungen, Germany, in 1986. From 1989 to 1994, Bertagnoli held a position as senior physician and head of the spine department at the Orthopedic University Hospital, Georg-August-University Goettingen, Germany.
