It is with great pleasure that we bring to you the first issue of The Spine Scholar. This new publication, published by the Seattle Science Foundation in Seattle, Washington, will highlight all aspects of our understanding of the spine and related anatomy and pathology. Our first issue of 2017 includes papers reviewing the details of molecular development of the intervertebral disc, aneurysmal bone cysts of the cervical spine, and complications of sacroiliac screw placement.
We hope that you enjoy this inaugural issue and consider submitting to The Spine Scholar in the future!
