Welcome to ISASS!
ISASS - The International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery - Is a global, scientific and educational society organized to provide an independent venue to discuss and address the issues involved with all aspects of basic and clinical science of motion preservation, stabilization, innovative technologies, MIS procedures, biologics and other fundamental topics to restore and improve motion and function of the spine for: surgeons, scientists, inventors and others. ISASS is dedicated to advancing major evolutionary steps in spine surgery.
ISASS President 2017-2018
International Advocates for Spine Patients (IASP) - ISASS sister organization - is an international organization partnering physicians, patients and the medical industry to advocate for high quality, widely accessible and cost effective spine care for patients around the world.
The International Journal of Spine Surgery is the official scientific journal of ISASS, promoting the most up-to-date scientific and clinical research into innovations in motion preservation and new spinal surgery technology, including basic science, biologics, and tissue engineering.
ISASS provides the missing link in spine surgery. The society has developed a unique platform for spinal surgeons, innovative scientists, and industry, all having the goal of improving today’s treatment options and patient outcomes. Innovation is needed, but the great ideas meet many obstructions before clinical implementation. Let’s learn from each other at ISASS. The best way to predict the future is to invent it. Move on and become an ISASS member.
Thank you! It was a great meeting! This meeting was the way NASS used to be in the 1990s.
ISASS is the rising star for spine surgeons.
Great course [ISASS January 2014 Course and Cadaver Lab]. Picked up some very practical pearls that I’ll be able to implement in my practice right away.
Attending ISASS as part of the cadaver lab was a great experience, not to mention our brief time with you and some of the participants. We would like to continue to be part of the effort.
My impressions were strongly positive. Very high scientific level and lots of opportunities to learn. I appreciated also the international outreach of the society compared with other spine societies. It looks there is a chance for non US surgeons to come forward and share their spine work.
Fan of ISASS - progressive thinking group, great opportunity for the Sentio MMG technology. Look forward to being in attendance!
The surgeon’s choice!
This meeting is surgeon-focused, well organized and very informative.
For spine surgeons ISASS is the GO TO meeting to discover what works, what doesn’t, and what is emerging. A must for spine surgeons.
ISASS has evolved into one of the premiere spine surgery meetings. The quality of research, presentations and symposia is outstanding. Great to attend a spine surgery focused meeting with an international presence.
The agenda of clinical research presentations at this year’s ISASS annual meeting was as strong as we’ve ever seen.
The scientific sessions were robust and comprehensive. If you want to stay informed on emerging technologies in spine surgery, this meeting is a must.
I believe ISASS efforts are being recognized and these efforts will ultimately help promote better spine care for patients.
The ISASS meeting serves as a platform for assessing and defining the latest technologies around the world. Critically reviewed by a panel of peers, it truly is the society for the advancement of spinal surgery.
I would say the society is well on its way to being the principal voice of the surgical community.
ISASS13: A wow moment for spine surgeons.
The ISASS Annual Meeting was a fantastic educational and networking experience. The focus on spine surgery and outcomes in an intimate collaborative setting is a great value.
Most patients go to their ‘spine doc’ for pain alleviation... not neuro deficit, not deformity, not instability. If we fail to steward and oversee the entire field of spine then we will become dinosaurs like some other specialties have become. The issue of untrained practitioners treating without training will grow... this underlines the importance of ISASS for spine surgeons by surgeons.
I was really pleased with the ISASS annual meeting. It was focussed, with good topics and wide geographic representation; very interesting. The society has great momentum.
ISASS is definitely the exception... Your efforts are definitely appreciated. When other docs ask who is a positive voice for surgeons and their patients I always point out ISASS as the best.
