To date, more than $20,000 has been donated by SOLAS board members to SOLAS' Support the Future fund. As an independent society, SOLAS is reliant on various funding sources, and we feel strongly in supporting the mission, vision and goals of our society. We hope you believe in SOLAS, too, and would consider making a tax-deductible donation to support research or another program you feel strongly about.

Personally, I have decided to donate $5,000 to this earnest cause based on the benefits I personally have gained as a member of SOLAS. The availability of lateral access surgery to my patient population has increased the procedures I can offer my patients with a wide array of spinal pathologies. I have seen these benefits first hand, and as such I value the research and education SOLAS provides its members. I hope you'll join me in donating, which you can do by clicking here.
