2. Vincent Arlet, MD, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Dr. Arlet has a special interest in treating patients with scoliosis. He recently treated a patient using a new database he created, Scolisoft, to show clinical pictures of different types of spine curvatures.

3. Isador Lieberman, MD, of the Texas Back Institute. Dr. Lieberman has a passion for minimally invasive spine surgery, which has led him to become an internationally recognized leader in the field. He recently co-developed SpineAssist, a robotic tool used to perform minimally invasive spine surgery that is used at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Plano.

4. Bernard Rawlins, MD, of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Dr. Rawlins is experienced in treating all spinal disorders from the cervical spine to scoliosis in adult and pediatric patients. His expertise in treating so many different conditions is supplemented by his research interests, including spine biomechanics, gene-mediated spine fusion and innovative surgical techniques.

5. Matthew El-Kadi, MD, of the University of Pittsburgh Passavant. As chief of neurosurgical surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Passavant spine center, Dr. El- Kadi has been instrumental in growing the facility and expanding its services beyond traditional spine surgery. Dr. El-Kadi has a professional interest in treating patients with fusion and minimally invasive spine surgery techniques.

6. Mick Perez-Cruet, MD, of the Michigan Head & Spine Institute at the Providence Medical Center. Dr. Perez-Cruet is a pioneer in minimally invasive spine surgery and recently treated a patient in June, helping her return to her golf game by August.

8. Kenneth Light, MD, of the San Francisco Spine Center. Dr. Light recently became one of the only physicians in the United States to successfully reverse a spinal fusion. Spinal fusions were thought to be permanent procedures, until recently, and many fusions severely limit the patient's range of motion. This was the case for Dr. Light's patient, who also suffered from constant pain before the reversal.

9. Choll Kim, MD, PhD, of the Spine Institute of San Diego. Dr. Kim is a nationally known expert on computer-assisted minimally invasive spine surgery.

Most recently, two physicians from Australia traveled to view and learn from Dr. Alegre.
