Welcome to the American Acadmey of Spine Physicians introduction to the International Spine Association (ISA), an organization developed to disseminate information about the spine and spinecare throughout the world.
The primary mission of the International Spine Association is to improve the quality of personal and professional spinecare through education. The ISA is committed to disseminating need-to-know information through the World Wide Web in numerous languages covering many topics related to the spine, including information about spine disorders, spine health, advances in technology and available spinecare. In addition to many services, the ISA manages the International Directory of Spine Specialists and the International Directory of Spinecare Products.
The ISA has one of the largest online searchable databases of information about the spine and spinecare. The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP), a highly respected member-based organization, is one of the greatest contributors of information to the ISA.
All healthcare professionals, especially members of the American Academy of Spine Physicians are encouraged to become members of the ISA. Membership is free. It provides professionals with an opportunity to see what is available to the public. Membership will encourage participating professionals to refer their clients and patients to the ISA for information and to become a member. We invite you to take advantage of the unique relationship between the AASP and the ISA and become a member today.
Welcome to the Inform a Colleague area of the Academy Website. The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) strives to implement new and more efficient methods for members to communicate with other healthcare professionals. One of the most effective tools is the online "Inform a Colleague" function. This function can be used to expand and educate your spinecare referral network. It also represents a resource to conveniently inform others about trends in spinecare and about offers of organizations such as the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP), the International Spine Association (ISA). The link library also contains an application for membership with the AASP.
The online "Inform a Colleague" feature provides an invaluable time-saving service for keeping spinecare professionalsup-to-date, expanding the spinecare network, stimulating interdisciplinary referrals and for inviting colleagues to join the AASP. The library of links is always being updated with useful information and resources. The linked messages can be used to
