“Dr. Davis’ passion for helping patients and clinical research, combined with his demonstrated commitment to advancing the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, will make him a valued addition to the Laser Spine Institute surgical team,” said Bill Horne, Chief Executive Officer, Laser Spine Institute. “We look forward to Dr. Davis’ contributions in helping the organization continue to deliver the most patient-centric and innovative spine care in the country.”
