Thank you for taking the time to visit the historical timeline of SRS and spine deformity treatment, presented first as an exhibition at the 50th year anniversary meeting of SRS in Minneapolis. For those who were not at the meeting or did not get the opportunity to visit the exhibition we are presenting the timeline in the SRS website.
This timeline is dedicated to the SRS Founders and early pioneers of spine deformity care. Their struggles and dedication led to the evolution of this field. The following timeline maps out this evolution from the “dark age” of spine deformity care to modern day knowledge and practice. Without the tremendous efforts of these innovative and creative thinkers, our continued journey would not be possible.
This is a living timeline that will continue to be expanded upon and suggested additions are always welcome. We would like to thank all contributors, members of the historical and 50th year anniversary committees and SRS staff (all listed at the exhibition) for their dedication and support of this project. We hope that you will find the timeline to be informative.
