Being an innovator means taking risks and trying new things; failure is often an outcome. But being a doctor means taking great care, limiting patient risk, and optimizing for the best possible outcome.

So how do you fuse these two mindsets to provide cutting-edge medical care that will significantly impact patients?

Join us for a fireside chat with Dr. Richard Fessler, a leader in surgical innovation and at the cutting edge of many “firsts.” One of the world’s leading neurosurgeons, Dr. Fessler, shares his passion for minimally invasive spine surgery, the role of clinical trials, and innovation in advancing spinal cord treatment.

His groundbreaking work in minimally invasive spine surgery, microendoscopic surgery, and spinal cord transplantation has contributed significantly to the field. He was the first physician in the United States to perform human embryonic spinal cord transplantation.

In addition to Dr. Fessler’s insights, we’ll also hear from Rick Simmons, CMO of Spinal Elements, a leader in the medical device industry for over three decades.

He brings a unique perspective to the discussion with his extensive background in sales and marketing, business and product development, and executive leadership.

Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from these experts and gain valuable insights into the latest advancements in spine surgery.
