Thursday, April 20th, 2017 | 11:00am – 12:00pm CT
At a time when therapeutic decisions are based on reasoned burdens of proof, there is strikingly little evidence supporting the use of most bone graft products.

- Separate fact from fiction in terms of regulatory scrutiny and payer mandated evidence
- Learn from a surgeon, active in research and teaching, why diving deep into the science and data helps his practice and patients
- Better understand how an advanced biologic, i-FACTOR Peptide Enhanced Bone Graft, has redefined the category
