About the Spine Technology Awards:

Presented by Orthopedics This Week 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. 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 proudly provide these awards in eight separate categories of spine care and an annual gala banquet to recognize their great talents and contributions. Technologies that are eligible for a Spine Technology Award must be any device, pharmaceutical or biologic product that was developed to improve the care of patients with spine disease.
