Dr. Fred Sweet Presents at Annual Scoliosis Research Society Meeting


Dr. Fred Sweet of Rockford Spine Center earned an opportunity to present results of a study he conducted earlier this year at the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) Annual Meeting & Course. More than 1,300 people attended the SRS annual meeting, which took place September 10-13, 2014 in Anchorage, Alaska.

Dr. Sweet continues to study the effectiveness of a technique he devised to lower infection rates following surgery and decrease the amount of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Current standard of care requires that patients be given an intravenous antibiotic prior to surgery to prevent infections. The surgeons at Rockford Spine Center have demonstrated that placing a powder version of the drug directly into the wound is more effective at reducing infection rates. In fact, the rate was lowered from a national average of 2.4% to 0.2%.

The method also aids in the effort to curb the growth of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which President Obama recently signed an executive order to create a task force to combat this issue.
