ISASS Chapters

ISASS began adding chapters in 2004 with the KOSAS-Korean SAS Chapter. In 2007 we added the Chinese Chapter and in 2008 added the Middle East and India Chapters. ISASS recently added the Taiwan Chapter in 2009. In June of 2010 the Latin America Chapter hosted the first LASAS Meeting in Los Cabos, Mexico. The second LASAS meeting was recently held August 4 – 6, 2011 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 1st annual meeting of the ISASS Turkey Chapter was held in November 2011.

The purpose of ISASS chapters is to provide a local forum for personal and professional development, provide an opportunity to network with others in the local spine community, gather information on how others are handling spine issues, provide insights into various spine procedures and policies and build relationships and contacts with other spine professionals from your area.
