Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Orthopaedics Volume 36, Issue 05: The Aching Back.

The goals of this program are to improve awareness of facet-mediated pain and pediatric back pain and provide information about surgery for cervical spine disease and spinal neoplasms. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Discuss methods for diagnosing symptomatic facet joint pain and review the options of nonoperative treatment for facet-mediated pain.
2. List red flags present on history and physical examination of pediatric back pain that warrant further evaluation.
3. Review the differential diagnosis for pediatric back pain.
4. Outline the role of arthroplasty in the treatment of the cervical spine-related conditions.
5. Highlight the advantages of minimally invasive surgery for spinal neoplasms.

The original programs were presented from Focused Controversy in Spine Care, sponsored by Medical University of South Carolina Multidisciplinary Spine Center by Emily A. Darr, MD, Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, James F. Mooney III, MD, Chief, Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, Daniel Riew, MD, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery; Chief, Cervical Spine Surgery; and Director, Cervical Spine Institute, Washington University Orthopedics, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO, and Bruce M. Frankel, MD, Professor of Neurosurgery, University of South Carolina, Charleston.
