Doctor Solomon Kamson of Spine Institute Northwest of Washington was recently in San Diego, California for the Boston BioLife Hands-On Sessions which are workshops for practitioners and researchers interested in new regenerative medicine techniques.
Dr. Kamson teamed up with Michael Meng, DC, a musculoskeletal ultrasonographer to demonstrate live patient ultrasound joint imaging and fluoroscopy on a cadaveric workstation.
Dr. Kamson, who specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques to address chronic pain and issues involving cervical and thoracic spine problems, is an interventional pain specialist, anesthesiologist, and educator who advocates the advantages of non-surgical and minimally invasive surgery for back pain.
Boston BioLife is a Massachusetts-based training company that brings together practicing physicians and researchers to further knowledge in Life Sciences and to foster the exchange of ideas among colleagues through hands-on training. The company emphasizes the need to focus on stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine.

Jeremiah Dawson – Cervical Fusion for 10-year Chronic Back and Neck Problem
Field training officer Jeremiah Dawson had been living with his chronic pain since 2006. Working around the pain for more than a decade, Jeremiah finally realized the severity of his problem during training with younger police officers. Jeremiah felt sharp pains in his leg as he was going through a routine running exercise.
Recognizing that the pain was becoming a hindrance to his job and to his life at home, Jeremiah sought out treatment from Doctor Kamson at Spine Institute Northwest (SINW).
After Jeremiah ‘s successful operation (a cervical fusion), he says, “Doctor Kamson has a way of putting you at ease, you are able to talk to him and he gives you the answers you need.” “I haven’t regretted one moment,” he explains, thankful that he is finally living his life as he wants to again.
