About the Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research

The purpose of the Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research is to promote researches on spine and spinal cord disorders and to encourage exchanges of information among researchers, and to contribute to the enhancement of human health by disclosing and spreading the results of our researches and knowledge to the general public.

The Society subsequently evolved into the Japanese Spine Research Society in 1985, the Japan Spine Research Society in 1990, and the current Japanese Society for Spine Surgery and Related Research in 2001.
