The Scoliosis Research Society is a non-profit, professional organization, made up of physicians and allied health personnel. Our primary focus is on providing continuing medical education for health care professionals and on funding/supporting research in spinal deformities. Founded in 1966, the SRS has gained recognition as one of the world's premier spine societies. Strict membership criteria ensure that the individual Fellows support that commitment.

The purpose of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) is to foster the optimal care of all patients with spinal deformities. Founded in 1966 with 35 members, the SRS has grown to include almost 1100 of the world’s leading spine surgeons in 41 countries, as well as some researchers, physician assistants and orthotists who are involved in research and treatment of spinal deformities.
The organization holds an annual meeting with strong global participation from spine surgeons and specialists from around the world. This annual scientific meeting includes scientific presentations related to spine surgery and spinal deformity, which are selected through a process of abstract submission and peer review. A second annual meeting, entitled International Meeting on Advanced Spine Techniques (IMAST) is held, focusing on emerging technologies and techniques.
