Welcome to the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) website.

The SRS is an organization devoted to patients with scoliosis and other abnormal curvatures of the spine. We are a highly passionate group of physicians, surgeons, researchers, and allied health professionals committed to providing evidence-based care for patients with spinal deformity. We are equally passionate about sharing that experience, knowledge and evidence with educational content on this website. We acknowledge not all the answers are known, but our Society is a research organization as well and we are working to find those answers every day.

If you are a Patient or Family Member seeking information about scoliosis or some other spinal deformity, we understand the need for information and invite you to click the Patient and Families link for access to a variety of educational material designed to help you have informed conversations with you physician. The internet can be a challenging place to identify reliable information – we promise the SRS website is one you can trust. It has been created by the world’s leading professionals who are experts in spinal deformity. Follow the SRS on our social media channels (below) and we will keep you up to date as new research or educational offerings are released.

For healthcare providers we have a section of the website for you as well – click on the Professionals link. The SRS provides numerous opportunities to gain knowledge on the assessment and treatment of patients with spinal deformity. Explore and find the content you need whether online or by attending one of our upcoming conferences or hands-on courses. If you would like to join this prestigious society, the membership requirements, benefits and application can be found here.

Our mission statement:
The purpose of the Scoliosis Research Society is to foster the optimal care of all patients with spinal deformities.

This rings true throughout the organization today just as it did in 1966 when the SRS was first formed. We are committed to education and research for patients with scoliosis around the globe.

Most sincerely,

Peter Newton, MD
SRS President 2018-2019
