The article addresses patient safety topics in spine surgery, including infection, length of stay, instrumentation strategies, pedicle screw malposition, radiation exposure, and neurologic events. Quality, safety, and value are concepts that are practical, easy to understand, and can be implemented on any scale and may be matched to individual practices. Further, with quality improvement, there is a culture shift to openly share information, protocols, and strategies so that more patients can rapidly benefit.
