Spine surgery

Launched in 2013, the Michigan Spine Surgery Improvement Collaborative brings orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons together to study ways to improve spine surgery outcomes in Michigan.  By collecting and sharing data and discussing observations, physicians in participating hospitals are developing best practices to reduce surgical complications, improve patients’ function following spine surgery, and reduce the need for subsequent surgeries.


Because this is a new CQI, the data is still being gathered and patient outcomes are still being tracked. The information is not yet robust enough to be analyzed and to generate results.
