It is through the Foundation for Research and Education in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (FREMISS) that global aid is provided. The FREMISS Global Aid program is designed to benefit not only surgeons, but also patients in these under privileged regions of the world.
- FREMISS works with local organizations to identify the needs and create a structure that will be most beneficial to the needs of the individuals, surgeons and patients in the region.
- Surgeons attend didactic sessions, lectures and live surgical workshops where they enhance their knowledge and skill.
- Underprivileged and needy patients benefit from surgical camps where they receive free treatment from experienced spine surgeons who demonstrate their knowledge and techniques to other surgeons who learn during these camps.
