Global Spine Outreach (GSO), a 501(c)(3), provides spinal surgeries to underprivileged children around the world. We partner and work alongside with local physicians to provide treatment to patients who otherwise would not receive care. Together, we correct spinal deformities, remove pain, and often prevent paralysis and extend life. Due to the complex nature of these surgeries, we also are dedicated to collaborating with local physicians and staff to provide training and honoring sustainable continuing care.
Global Spine Outreach (GSO) transforms the lives of children with severe spinal deformities worldwide by performing state-of-the-art surgeries free of charge. We collaborate with local medical communities to build self-sustaining spine surgery centers of excellence. We enable surgeons to continually refine and sharpen their spine surgery skills through training and education provided by leading spine surgeons.
For every child with a severe spinal deformity to have access to life-transforming surgical care.
We treat each patient as we would our own child.
We empower and advocate for the communities we serve through the transfer of knowledge and skill.
We show respect for the culture and customs of the children and families we serve.
We model professional excellence, integrity, and quality of care.
