Welcome to the first episode of our “Citation Classics” series! The goal of these episodes are to go over the most cited articles in a certain topic over the past 15-20 years to give learners an idea of what articles are being read and what are some of the important studies out there to read! 

In this episode we have Dr. Sohum Patel, a PGY-2 resident at Indiana University School of Medicine, and Jose Chacon, a medical student at American University of Integrative Sciences School of Medicine. This is the first episode of our spine citation classics, and they cover cervical myelopathy!
