Born from the trend in the spine industry to look at motion preservation as an alternative to fusion, the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery (formerly The Spine Arthroplasty Society) is dedicated to advancing major evolutionary steps in spine surgery. Since its inception in 2000, ISASS has worked to achieve its mission of acting as a global, scientific, and educational society organized to provide an independent venue to discuss and address the issues involved with all aspects of the basic and clinical sciences of motion preservation, stabilization, technological innovations, MIS procedures, biologics, and other fundamental topics to restore and improve motion and function of the spine.
