The Scoliosis Research Society Annual Meeting & Course is a forum for the realization of the Society’s mission and goals, the improvement of patient care for those with spinal deformities. Over 100 papers will be presented on an array of topics, including adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, growing spine, kyphosis, adult deformity, trauma, neuromuscular scoliosis and tumors.

At the conclusion of the SRS 46th Annual Meeting & Course, participants should be able to:

1) Recognize and address factors which may contribute to higher complication rates or risk of reoperation in children and adults with spinal deformities

2) Incorporate pre- and peri-operative steps that may help to avoid complica­tions in spinal deformity surgery in children, adolescents and adults

3) Assess clinical and radiographic factors that contribute to positive or negative outcomes in spinal deformity surgery

4) Improve treatment plans for patients with spinal deformity through a better understanding of long term results from various options

5) Understand the relationship between spinal deformity treatments and quality of life, including body image in adolescent scoliosis, as perceived by patients

Presentations at the SRS Annual Meeting and Course will have value for physi­cians and allied health personnel who treat spinal deformities at all levels and in all ages of patients. Medical students, residents, fellows and researchers with an interest in spinal deformities will also benefit from the materials presented.
