Medtronic is the latest sponsor of the American Spine Registry, a collaborative effort between the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons that aims to improve spine surgery outcomes through data.

The registry will work with Medtronic to "enhance the scalability, sustainability, ease-of-use and relevance of national spine data collection," Steven Glassman, MD, executive committee co-chair of the registry, said in a May 5 news release.

Through the registry, AAOS and AANS help surgeons understand which spine procedures work best in certain patients by providing data to guide clinical decision-making.

"This partnership, coupled with our recent acquisition of Medicrea, reinforces our commitment to high-quality data and focus on the application of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and data-enabled therapies driving improved patient outcomes in spine care," said Carlton Weatherby, vice president and general manager of Medtronic Spine and Biologics.

The American Spine Registry launched in 2020 and now includes more than 200 practice locations in 35 states.
