Dr. Schwartzberg performs and publishes research and teaches advanced knee and shoulder arthroscopic skills to orthopaedic surgeons throughout the United States.
Steven E. Weber, DO, a board certified spine surgeon at Orlando Orthopaedic Center who specializes in Adult Spinal Reconstruction, will be on location to assist with questions from the audience.

ABOUT WCEC & WCI
Now in its 67th year, the Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference (WCEC) is the must-attend event for C-level executives, risk managers, claims adjusters, insurers, and medical and legal experts. Presented by the Workers’ Compensation Institute (WCI), the conference offers attendees an extraordinary opportunity to connect with their peers and learn from nationally recognized experts.
Ongoing registration for the 2012 gathering reflects the global perspective of the conference, with an expected 8,000 participants from over 35 states and a number of foreign countries. The conference itself has been expanded to four days to accommodate the several hundred speakers presenting discipline-specific programs, break-out sessions and CEU opportunities. Of particular interest are a National Trends’ program featuring three national medical directors; a Risk Managers’ break-out paneled by two insurance company presidents; and a two-day “Center for Excellence: The Study of Medical Cost Drivers in Workers’ Compensation,”
The 2012 Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference will be held August 19-23 at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
