Scoliosis Research Society (SRS)
An International Organization Dedicated to the Education, Research and Treatment of Spinal Deformity
Our Mission is to Foster Optimal Care for All Patients with Spinal Deformities
Mulago Hospital lies just outside of Kampala, the capital of Uganda. The team also evaluates patients at Case Medical Centre in Kampala.
Isador Lieberman, MD (Plano, TX) pioneered the trip in 2006. The two-week mission takes place every August. The team consists of local and SRS surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, students, and other volunteers. The teams typically perform 10-20 complex spine surgeries during their stay, and distribute medical equipment to patients in need.
The Scoliosis Research Society provides information on these web pages regarding research and links as a public service. The SRS believes that patients should contact their treating physician about the relevance of any information listed on the site prior to proceeding with any particular treatment. Just as no two individuals are exactly alike, no two patients with a spinal deformity are the same. Therefore, your spinal deformity surgeon will be the most important source of information about the management of your particular spinal problem.
