Extract

In the last twenty years, spine surgery as a subspecialty of orthopaedic surgery has enjoyed an explosion of interest. In 1981, fewer than fifteen spine fellowships were available. By 2000, more than 200 post-residency opportunities were available for training related to the spine. Four spine societies are members of the Council of Musculoskeletal Specialty Societies, which reports to the board of directors of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. These four societies—the American Spinal Injury Association, the Cervical Spine Research Society, the North American Spine Society, and the Scoliosis Research Society—also form the Federation of Spine Associations, which is charged with coordinating the spine program for Specialty Day at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
