  1. Overall Ms. Meier does a nice job on these articles, so I was surprised to see a couple of errors in the article regarding 55 facts spine surgeons should know.

    In the section listing the Top 5 spine companies, Synthes is included – but Synthes merged with Depuy over a year ago and is no longer an industry player.

    Also, the rankings of the top hospitals for neurology/ neurosurgery are incorrect – Mass General is # 2, not Columbia.
