2017 Annual Report Available

2017 Annual Report CoverAnother year of pursuing the Foundation's research goals led to our presentations at meeting around the world. SDSF Founder Behrooz A. Akbarnia was honored to deliver the Harrington Lecture at the SRS meeting in Prague, Czech Republic.

Members of our faculty traveled once again to Christus Muguerza Hospital in Monterrey, Mexico to deliver advanced care to children in need, as well as training and inspiration for local surgeons.

This year we're personalizing the stories of Jack and of Florence to give our readers a true sense of how we can affect and improve the lives of individuals with spinal  conditions and deformities.

Our mission is ongoing and the need does not decline. We invite you to download our 2017 Annual Report and ask that you consider the Foundation as a part of your annual charitable donation.
