Two doctors, one physician assistant, and one medical assistant from Sierra Regional Spine Institute will attend this year’s American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Convention in Las Vegas next month. The group is expected to learn about current political issues regarding health care and engage in educational activities. The convention is going to take place during the day between March 24 and March 27.

Dr. James Rappaport, Dr. Phelps Kip, Physician Assistant Star Chenoweth, and Medical Assistant Gayle Stevens are all attending the convention.

“The academy keeps up to date not only politically but educationally,” said Penny Forbes, Practice Administrator. “They require continuing education credits and offer classes for doctors and staff to maintain their certificates.”

Technical exhibits will allow participants to compare products, watch demonstrations, plan the purchase of products and services, and explore the marketplace. There is also an opportunity for attendees to present difficult or troubling cases to an expert in orthopedics for recommendations and diagnoses of the causes of lower back pain and other maladies.

The technical exhibits will ultimately help the doctors and assistants better manage the practice and provide care to patients. More than 550 companies that specialize in bone and tissue products, implants, surgical equipment, and computer software will be in attendance.

“These conventions also have the latest and greatest technology with the most significant information for doctors to expand their knowledge in their fields,” added Forbes. “The AAOS also provides information on the political scene in D.C. including both state and national level news when it comes to things such as health care.”
