Senior Advisor, Director of Service Line Development and Practice Management
Spine surgeons are paying closer attention to the patient experience at their practice as patients play a bigger role in choosing their specialist. Even baby boomers are going online today to educate themselves about their medical conditions and looking for the best specialist to fulfill their needs.
“Spine is definitely a service line that is growing,” says Brian Bizub, CEO of Palm Beach Orthopaedic Institute in Southeast Florida. “People are living longer and are more mobile so they are having back pain. In the past, people weren’t as active in sports during their later years, and that’s causing great problems as well. Spine care needs to be a comprehensive program these days to treat patients and return them to activity.”
