SRS 10 x 10  


Why Support Research?  Since its inception, SRS has been the world’s leading forum for presenting spinal deformity research.  The Society has encouraged and enabled the interchange of ideas, the formation of research hypotheses, and the critical evaluation of research proposals and results. 

Why Now?  Today the need for research guidance and funding is greater than ever, and research avenues are more complex and costly.  As health care providers we have a responsibility to our patients, which should include a commitment to support research that will help improve their lives. 

Support SRS through OREF today.
All gifts of $1,000 or more to the OREF Annual Campaign earn Order of Merit recognition and the opportunity to direct a portion to the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS).  Those giving $2,500 or more are eligible for VIP Housing privileges at the AAOS Annual Meeting.  Please give generously to advance the science and practice of orthopaedics. 

If you are ready to join your SRS leadership in acting on that commitment please support SRS research today, one of two ways:

"The SRS has been my most important professional society for education, presentation, collegiality, professional development, and the formation of
cutting-edge research questions.

Shirley and I have contributed to the OREF and the SRS endowment fund for many years, been Shands Circle members, and now we are able to leave a legacy to help ensure the viability of SRS efforts for the foreseeable future. It is a privilege to be able to support the SRS in this way."
