The World Spinal Column Society’s mission is to advance spine care worldwide by connecting spine surgeons in advanced and emerging nations through high quality education, training and collaborative activities.


The founding Board Members of WScS have previously directed the World Spine Society, which was administered by NASS. As the World Spine Society’s activities have almost ceased, its leading surgeons have joined together to launch WScS, as an independent society. The WScS will not be administrated by NASS.
