Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision

is to be the driving force and the primary and preferred partner in Europe for all spinal care issues.

Our Mission

is to

  • optimise patient care and prevention of spinal disorders
  • provide and support “best practice” spine-related lifelong learning and research
  • ring together all spine-related European stakeholders across disciplines, cultures and countries


EUROSPINE is a society of spine specialists of various disciplines with a large knowledge of spine pathologies. All well-known and accepted treatment modalities for spine pathologies are represented by the members of the society. However, the Society cannot accept any responsibility for the use of the information provided; the user and their health care professionals must retain responsibility for their health care management.
