Welcome to the SASS Website

The South African Spine Society is an independent professional organisation of medical and complementary health personnel.

The Society was founded in 1983 with the aim of promoting continuing medical education for health care professionals and disseminating knowledge on spine related disorders.

The Society strives to achieve and maintain the highest standard of excellence and ethical practice in the treatment of patients with spinal disorders. It supports proper scientific research and the sharing of such knowledge through publications, congresses, courses and interaction with other similar international organisations
