The Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) was founded in 1966 with a principal interest in pediatric spinal deformity. Quite a bit has changed since then, and the main interest is no longer simply teenage idiopathic scoliosis. Other interests and concerns include adult deformity, tumors, fractures, and spondylolisthesis, which are conditions that can affect patients throughout life. The current mission statement of the Scoliosis Research Society is "to foster optimal care of the patient with any disorder that may affect the shape, alignment or function of the spine, throughout life. The SRS accomplishes this, through education, research, advocacy and ethical practice."
