Welcome to the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) website.

Here you will find information and resources for patients and spine deformity experts, such as educational offerings, and the latest research. Founded 53 years ago, our society focuses on the special challenges involved in the prevention and correction of changes in spinal shape. As the premier worldwide spine deformity society, we connect experts throughout the world in order to provide answers from as many sources as possible. Our members include orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, other medical specialists, researchers, nurses and other experts. Our society finds value in each other’s ideas to advance patient care.

Our guiding principles are Education, Research, Patient Education and Ethical Practice.

If you’re a patient, material to help you is available without a password using the link: Here you’ll find social media, videos, webinars, patient education guides, and a global specialist locator, among other resources. We invite you to use them and suggest other ways to provide you the most useful information.

If you are a professional who is not yet a member, our educational offerings can be found here: There are archived meeting presentations and webinars, and a link to our continuously updated Core Curriculum. If you would like more information on our meetings, they can be found here:

Finally, if you are interested in joining this dynamic and respected Society, we have opportunities at several levels. Membership information can be found here:, or by contacting our staff at +1 414-289-9107.

The Society exists with a mission to foster optimal care of all patients with spinal deformities. Please use our resources and contact us if you have ideas to help with this mission.
