The North American Spine Society named Daniel Resnick, MD, president for the coming year.

 

"I am proud to lead NASS because it is dedicated to improving outcomes across the spectrum of spine care," said Dr. Resnick. "NASS has a significant voice in this process and I am proud to represent NASS at meetings with agencies such as the CMS and the FDA, funding agencies such as the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and on Capitol Hill, where our input has made a real difference in patient care."

 

Dr. Resnick previously served as the director of the research council, secretary and vice president of NASS; he is also a past chair of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine and past president of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. He currently serves as director of the NASS registry efforts.

 

As an organization of 3,000-plus spine professionals, NASS named Dr. Resnick its next president at the annual meeting in Orlando, Oct. 25 to 28. The organization represents 8,000-plus members from several disciplines focused on spine care.

 

In addition to his new appointment, Dr. Resnick serves as professor, vice chairman and residency program director of neurosurgery at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Throughout his career, Dr. Resnick's academic interest has been the development and application of evidence-based spine care, and he is a principal investigator in several prospective trials evaluating clinical and economic efficacy of common spinal treatments.

 

Dr. Resnick earned his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania and completed his residency training in neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh.
