AOSpine is an international community of spine surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, academics, researchers, and other spine care professionals dedicated to delivering knowledge, experience, and evidence to improve patient care and outcomes.
Each year, AOSpine runs over 150 educational events in various formats, covering all aspects of spine surgery and reaching out to surgeons at every stage of their career.
AOSpine educational events, such as courses, symposia, and academic congresses provide an opportunity for hands-on learning, alongside constructive discussions with faculty and colleagues in a stimulating environment representative of the community of AOSpine.
At AOSpine, our goal is to perform research—from experimental to clinical studies. AOSpine leads the global spine care community by fostering innovation and evidence-based clinical practice. Understanding of current and future scientific directions, initiating research and guidance for the best in class education are driven by working groups (Global Knowledge Forums have been established for clinical research in the field of Tumor, Spinal Cord Injury and Deformity; and a Spine Research Network has been established focusing on Intervertebral Disc research).
AOSpine encourages every member to get involved by contributing their knowledge and experience into AOSpine's Membership benefits such as the Evidence-Bases Spine-Care Journal and CaseBase.
In this way, the largest global spine care community grows and enriches itself in terms of skills, understanding, and professionalism. As a consequence, AOSpine members can advance their own research projects or improve patient care through knowledge sharing and access to state-of-the-art information.
