The field of spine research and treatment has evolved over the more than 50-year existence of the Scoliosis Research Society. Society members have for decades contributed to the progress in technique and understanding in the field.
The SRS’s goal to support research, education, patient, and physician outreach led to the creation of the Research, Education, and Outreach (REO) Fund.
Donations to the REO Fund allows the Society to support these essential activities in the future and fortify the position as the premier independent spinal deformity research organization.
The education, outreach and research that SRS does, supports SRS’s overall research mission to enhance meaningful discoveries for all patients with spinal deformity. The same research that changed the lives of patients such as ….
