Solberg tore.solberg@unn.no Lena Ringstad Olsen lena.ringstad.olsen@helse-nord.no Anette Moltu Thyrhaug anette.moltu.thyrhaug@unn.no <p>The Norwegian registry for spine surgery (NORspine) aims at improving the quality of surgical treatment for degenerative disorders in the cervical and lumbar spine. In 2019, the national coverage was 95 % at the institutional level and 69 % at the individual level for lumbar spine surgery. For cervical spine surgery , the corresponding figures were 100 % and 82 %. Twelve of the participating hospitals in Norway should improve their rate of reporting data related to spine surgery. Patients experience strong and clinically relevant improvements of pain, disability and healthrelated quality of life after surgery. These results have been stable over the years. There are small variations in clinical results (PROMs) between hospitals, both for patients operated in the cervical and lumbar spine. Many of these differences can be explained by variation in patient populations and differences in criteria for performing surgery.</p> 2020-10-16T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tore K.

The registry aims to improve the quality of surgical treatment for degenerative spine conditions. It measures patient reported outcomes (PROM) and experiences (PREM) with validated outcome scales. The actuality, correctness, reliability, completeness and comparability of the data has been validated and is good.</p> 2021-06-16T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tore K.
