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 54 years ago, our society focuses on the special challenges involved in the prevention and correction of changes in spinal shape. Our members include orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, other medical specialists, researchers, nurses, orthotists, physiotherapists and other experts from all around the World. Our society finds value in each other’s ideas to advance patient care.
Our mission is to be the Global leader in the creation and dissemination of spinal deformity knowledge. Having started with 37 members 54 years ago, SRS has gained recognition as Of the World's premier spine society with 1413 members from 64 countries today. The SRS’s global leadership in education (both surgeons and patients) will result in significantly enhanced quality of life of all patients with spinal deformities from cradle to grave. Research is our middle name! Every year, as SRS, we contribute significantly to spinal deformity researches. While maintaining all our activities, our essential and sine qua non principle is to always prioritize ethical standards.
