FARMINGTON, Conn. -- BroadcastMed, Inc. invites health professionals to the MD Video Education Center from Brigham and Women's Hospital for a case study about appropriate treatments for common spinal disorders. This one hour video features a panel discussion with orthopedic surgeon Christopher M. Bono, MD, Chief, Orthopedic Spine Service, neurosurgeon Michael W. Groff, MD, Director, Spinal Neurosurgery, neurosurgeon John H. Chi, MD, MPH, anesthesiologist David R. Janfaza, MD and physiatrist Zacharia Isaac, MD, Medical Director, Comprehensive Spine Center.

Targeted at assisting first-line treaters of spinal disorders, the panel discusses ways to improve diagnostic and patient referral processes based on best practice algorithms, to determining when and if a patient should be referred for further evaluation or treatment.
