per year in the USA, that means approximately one in $144 GDP

dollars is spent on spine care. 2017 World GDP is estimated at

$79.6 trillion dollars. Extrapolating the same (1/144) ratio, the

world spine costs are $553 billion dollars (0.7% GDP). However,

if the world spends at a rate of one half of the American

Rate (1/288), then the costs are approximately $276 billion
