AI, machine learning will lead to more 'predictable, efficient and safer' surgeries: 10 spine leaders weigh in

Becker’s Spine Review discusses the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in spine surgery according to experts including HSS spine surgeon James E. Dowdell III, MD.

Dr. Dowdell noted, “AI and machine learning will drive better outcomes in spine surgery within the next 10 years. The most difficult aspect of spine surgery is deciding on the correct operation for the correct patient. There are many variables at play that determine a successful surgical outcome for a patient. AI/machine learning will use these variables to help support our surgical decision making. Reducing the variability in decision making will help drive better patient outcomes, reduce complications, and reduce healthcare spending.”
