Excerpt: World Spine Care (WSC) is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to bring sustainable, integrated, evidence-based spine care to underserved communities around the world. It was founded by Dr. Scott Haldeman who recognized the global burden of spinal disorders and the lack of access to adequate care in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). In 2008, he launched this ambitious project to address the enormous gap in spine care delivery around the world.
