Rockford Spine Center Surgeon Michael Roh, M.D., recently spoke during Grand Rounds at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford.
The presentation to physicians, nurses and medical students was "Spinal Disorders: Prevention and Treatment." Dr. Roh discussed surgical treatments for common cervical and lumbar spinal conditions, and reviewed preventative care concepts and the roles that genetics and body mechanics play in neck and back injury.
Grand Rounds is an important teaching tool in medical education and inpatient care. It includes presenting medical problems and treatments of patients to an audience of health care professionals and medical students.
