Complex Spine Study Group (CSSG)


A multi-center study enrolling patients undergoing surgical treatment of a spinal disease or deformity. This study is being done to collect information for a research database from subjects with surgically indicated spinal disease or deformity. This database will be used for future reviews that will better and more comprehensively describe the course of spinal deformity, potentially identify correlates to predict progression, and stratify effectiveness of the various treatment options. Participation includes filling out questionnaires at clinic visits and releasing your x-ray and clinical information to be used in the database.
