400,000 Lumbar/Cervical Procedures in 2008, Expected to go up to 650,000/year by 2015?

News about increasing number of Lumbar and Cervical spine procedures in US is going around all over the net, I am not sure if the
neuromonitoring and apsiring future spine specialists read this story. It is
interesting to note there are about 400,000 surgeries performed during 2008 alone and the number is projected to be about 650,000 by 2015 as the aging population increases in number!.

The data analysis was carried out by a company called Global Markets Direct (Global Data), check the link but be aware that you CANNO'T find or read the news report at their site, as the data is sold for $3500 or so?.

But, there are numerous reports providing information from the original Global markets data?.

Laura Woods article at the research and markets is the best place to start if you
are interested to learn more about this news.
