Fellowship Gatherings

The word "fellowship" has two meanings. In the medical context, it refers to training and education at the highest level..., the honing of the skills of a surgeon under the guidance of experts in the field.

It also refers to companionship and the institution of life-long relationships and friendships built on shared goals and experiences.

The San Diego Spine Fellowship Program endeavors to accomplish both these goals.
