Morrison Clinic™ Earns Acceptance in the Renowned American Spine Registry

Delivering Excellence in Spinal Health as the Only ASR-Registered Clinic in Palm Beach and Broward County

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA, APRIL 27th, 2023 – Morrison Clinic™ is delighted to announce its acceptance into the American Spine Registry (ASR). Earning this distinction makes Morrison Clinic™ the only ASR-accepted spinal surgery center within a 50-mile radius, including both Palm Beach and Broward County.

Admittance to the ASR highlights our team’s commitment to and achievement of providing excellent spinal health care to the South Florida area. More specifically, this ASR partnership recognizes that our neurosurgery center and clinics are engaging in data collection, submission, and implementation practices that ensure our patients are receiving the most up-to-date and highest quality spinal care. 

The American Spine Registry is a collaborative endeavor between the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). The ASR initiative seeks to support excellent patient outcomes for spinal care by researching spinal health conditions and procedures. Common spinal conditions captured by the ASR include degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, and disc herniation. Related procedures often studied by the ASR include discectomy, decompression, laminectomy, and fusion surgeries.

The ASR uses their data to create evidence-based benchmarks for practice. These benchmarks guide quality of care evaluations, inform the resources and feedback provided to ASR physicians, and bridge the knowledge-to-practice gap so that patients receive excellent, cutting-edge spinal care. Accepting spinal care practices, like Morrison Clinic™, allows the ASR to expand their work to continuously improve spinal care education, safety, and practice.

What does this mean for patients of Morrison Clinic™? Our team is the only practice in the area with access to the ASR’s national data resources for spinal care. Our patients can feel confident in the commitment to and quality of spinal care they will receive from Morrison Clinic™ as an ASR-accepted partner.

“Our participation in ASR is integral to our practice model of improving quality of care for all through better outcomes.”
