* Understand commonly employed surgical techniques and their functional implications for the patients (spinal fusions,   ACDF, TLIF, PLIF, ALIF, XLIF, Kyphoplasties, etc.)
* Have a better awareness of less invasive options for pts suffering from spinal pain: (n)SAID's, TFESI, Facet blocks,   Traction, Rhizotomies, Stem Cell, Nerve Ablations)
* Have a good understanding of clinical precautions typically prescribed to patients undergoing aforementioned   procedures
