KASS History & Mission
Now in its 19th year, the Korean American Spine Society (KASS) gathers spine surgeons in a collegial and educational Annual Meeting. Our members are primarily Korean Americans, both orthopedic and neurological spine surgeons. All are welcome at the Annual Meeting, which combines in-depth CME education from leaders in the field, free papers to exchange the members’ latest research, and honest conversation about clinical cases and complications.
KASS partners with numerous medical device and spine companies with exhibits, workshops, and other promotional support opportunities. The Annual Meeting also provides a time for colleagues and families to connect over meals, activities, a Welcome Reception, and the Annual Dinner, which features a general interest speaker sharing their perspective of the Korean American experience.
It is the Mission of KASS to improve the quality of scientific knowledge, patient care, and clinical practice among professionals in the field of spinal disorders and promote social and cultural interaction between Korean American Spine Specialists.
