SIS Membership Survey Supports Award-Winning Study
Tuesday, June 14, 2016
SIS members contributed to the study that was awarded the Clinical Research Prize by the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS) during the 2016 SpineWeek. A survey was sent to the SIS membership in winter 2015 for the study, Consensus on the Clinical Diagnosis of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: Results of an International Delphi Study. Congratulations to the authors, especially SIS member Matthew Smuck MD, and thank you to all SIS members who took the time to participate in this important survey.
