NAPA's Dr. Sonia Szlyk Explores Regional Anesthesia in the Era of Value-Based Care at the Orthopaedic Summit 2016

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - December 01, 2016) - North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA) announced today that Director of Regional Anesthesia for NAPA's mid-Atlantic region, Sonia Szlyk, MD will serve as a featured speaker at the Orthopaedic Summit 2016: Evolving Techniques -- Sports Medicine, Arthroscopic Surgery & Arthroplasty. Dr. Szlyk will be presenting four lectures related to regional anesthesia over the course of the premier conference, which is attended by over 1,000 healthcare providers. This is the fourth consecutive year she will serve as a featured speaker at the event, which will be held December 7-10, 2016 at The Mirage in Las Vegas, NV.

"Anesthesiologists and orthopedists are collaborating to deliver optimal patient care within an evolving value-based environment," said Dr. Szlyk.
