Editing old post.... Plans have changed.

OK folks, this is going to happen.

Confirmed speakers:

Dr. Rudolph Bertagnoli (will chair event)
Dr. Willem Zeegers (will give 15 year retrospective of ADR)
Dr. Anthony Yeung (in addition to SED, will present some incredible new technology.)
Dr. Fabien Bitan (Principal investigator, Charite' and Dynesys)
Dr. James Yue (in addition to ProDisc, will present some incredible new technology.)

Joe Vest (MGH BigJoe... if you don't know his story, bring some kleenex... get ready to laugh your A$$ off, and cry too)

We are going to have a full program, all day Sunday, May 1st, in NEW YORK CITY. There will be a cocktail reception on Saturday night. Breakfast will be served on Sunday morning before the proceedings start. Lunch will be served Sunday afternoon.

I've got more surprises, but they are not confirmed yet.

How do I need your help? I need to know what YOU want to see. I want this to be a general spine meeting... obviously ADR is a big part of it, but this I want to cover as much as possible, without cutting any topics presented too short. I won't be able to cover everything, but it is clear... what I do cover will be represented by the best in the business. There will be some tough decisions made about what to include and what to leave out... so let me know...

What do you want to see?

So circle May 1st on your calendar. I'm working on a venue now... hopefully, I'll get it nailed down soon.

I'll keep everyone posted as I learn details. But, this is a GO. With the support I already have, I know that this is going to be an incredible event.

I'll see you in New York.

Mark

Mark, what's the latest? I called Dr. Bitan's office to introduce myself, spoke to an assistant who promised to call me back and never did.

If we all put our nickels together for every time a "doctor's office" was supposed to call us back, do you think we could fix the national deficit?!
