ABOUT THE SPEAKER
After completing his fellowship, Amer Samdani, M.D., joined the staff at Shriners Children’s Philadelphia in 2005. He specialises in the care of children with spine issues and is passionate about finding innovative ways to improve care. Fusionless strategies to treat children, such as vertebral body tethering, have been a major focus of his clinical work. He believes working at Shriners Children’s is the ideal place to practise medicine, as one gets to work with the best colleagues and patients without being hindered by a patient’s ability to pay.
Dr Samdani is very active in research and education. He sits on the executive committee of the Harms Study Group and is a board member of the Paediatric Spine Study Group. He has published over 250 peer-reviewed articles and given over 100 invited lectures/Grand Rounds presentations.
