AO Spine's rich and proud heritage
Back in 1958, four visionary Swiss surgeons shared a common goal: to conduct bone healing research in a structured and coordinated study group. It was effectively the birth of AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen—literally, “working group on bone fusion issues”).
Over the years, its scope has expanded to keep pace with rapid developments in musculoskeletal surgery and patient care, and in 1984 the AO Foundation was formally established.
In the late 1990s, a group of spine surgeons realized the potential of specialist organizations with a focus on the spine. Led by John Webb, Max Aebi, and Paul Pavlov, and supported by industry partners AO, their initiative led to the creation of the AO Specialization Council for Spine Surgery in 2000. Its mission is to develop spine expertise as a core competency of the AO Foundation, promoting and support the individual needs of the spine surgeon.
After a very successful pilot period, AO Spine was officially founded in 2003. Today, our community of spine surgeons, researchers, and professionals numbers more than 30,000 people. We are constantly evolving, taking us to unprecedented levels through innovative programs, fresh ideas and a fully committed team.
