What Innovation Means to You

It means advancing your well-being – and Hoag continues to lead the way. In this issue of Hoag for Life, you will learn how Hoag is using robotic navigation to enhance the accuracy of minimally invasive spine surgery. But Hoag’s innovations extend far beyond equipment.
