According to SRS, their …Global Outreach Mission Programs are medical mission programs that provide spinal deformity care to individuals of all ages in fulfillment of our mission statement. This may be in the form of service, education, and research.
An outreach program endorsed by SRS has to meet many stringent criteria, such as report their surgical cases to SRS, adhere to safety guidelines, maintain ethical fundraising guidelines, participate in research protocols and submit to yearly reviews.
SRS is an international organization which includes more than 1,000 of the world’s leading spine surgeons, researchers, physician assistants and orthotists who are involved in research and treatment of spinal deformities. Its mission is to maintain a commitment to research and education in the field of spinal deformities.
Dr. McConnell, Dr Bednath and everyone associated with Operation Straight Spine gratefully thanks SRS for their recognition.
