New! Consensus Items: Prevention of Wrong Level Surgery.

First do no harm!

Spine surgery is a high-risk, high-reward procedure. Successful surgical outcomes can change patients’ lives. But surgical expertise must be combined with strict protocols to minimize complications and to maximize safety. S3P understands the risks, and we are committed to enhancing safety in spine surgery worldwide.

Having started with the successful Annual Safety in Spine Surgery Summits, S3P is now broadening its focus. In the next year we’ll be launching new safety resources and educational opportunities to support the spine community. Our focus includes:

  • Identifying ways to enhance safety in spine surgery
  • Advocating for best safety practices
  • Educating spine professionals about these best practices
  • Helping our peers to adopt processes, tools, and systems that improve care.

All professionals in the spine surgery field are invited to sign-up to receive updates and join our mission.
