Daniel Riew, MD, Represents for Me the Model Cervical Spine Surgeon

May 03 | 2018

Daniel Riew, MD, represents for me the model cervical spine surgeon. I’ve known him for a long time and spent time with him in the USA and all over the world when he was President of the CSRS (Cervical Spine Research Society) and I was President of CSRS-ES (Cervical Spine Research Society — European Section). As a speaker, he is clear, didactic and brings huge personal experience with spinal surgery. But most of all, I appreciate his honesty, ability to share personal experience, different from what can be acquired from publications, and free of any conflicts of interest. As a surgeon, through publications on techniques and surgical courses that are internationally well-known, he proves his brightness, his skill and his intelligence in decision-making and appropriate indications. And to conclude, he is a charming person, very warm and very close to his patients.
