First Spine Technology Awards to Recognize Excellence and Innovation
Date:6/15/2009

WAYNE, Pa., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- This November the Spine Technology Awards will recognize the best spine products, engineering teams and inventors for 2009. The first awards of their kind, they will focus exclusively on rewarding excellence and innovation.

Awards will be presented in eight categories: Device Technologies for Cervical Care, Lumbar Care, Motion Preservation of the Spine, Minimally Invasive Care, Biomaterials, Diagnostics and Imaging, Pain Management, and Regenerative Technologies.

Any company that produces products for use in spine surgery may enter in one or more of the eight categories. Judging by surgeons will be based on originality, clinical relevance, and the likelihood that the technology will improve current standards of care. The deadline for submission of entries is August 15, 2009. The eight winning entries will be revealed during the gala banquet in San Francisco on November 9, 2009.

Presented by Orthopedics This Week, the premier online orthopedics newsletter, and RRY Publications, the Spine Technology Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary and innovative spine surgery products and the engineering teams and inventors who create them.

In the words of Orthopedics This Week founder Robin Young, "Patients, physicians, hospitals, and reimbursers rely on the inspiration and perspiration of engineers and surgeon-inventors to improve outcomes and to control costs. Most engineers and inventors are little known, so we are proud to provide awards and a venue to recognize their great talents and contributions."
