In this issue, we present interviews with our Meritorious Award Winners for Neurosurgery, Bob Heary, and Orthopedics, Rolando Garcia, who will both be honored at the Spine Summit this spring. Also, Scott Zuckerman provides a fascinating account of spine surgery medical mission work in Tanzania. In our Peripheral Nerve learning corner, TJ Wilson and Zack Ray describe nerve transfers for spinal cord injury patients. Finally, LuisTumialan, Charlie Sansur and John Ratliff explain how the efforts of the Rapid Response Team of our DSPN Section made a key difference in reversing a critical error in spine surgery coding policy.
