Membership for spine surgeons

The overarching objective of the Swedish Society of Spinal Surgeons is to promote collaboration among spine surgeons in Sweden and Scandinavia in order to achieve benefits for patients, doctors, clinics and the healthcare system. Members of the society are surgeons with documented experience in spinal surgery (at least disc herniation) and who are interested in matters involving research and development. The society admits surgeons who meet the requirements prescribed by the bylaws. Members are admitted during the annual meeting of the society.

Excerpt from 4S by-laws
Sec 5 In addition to possessing documented experience in spinal surgery, members of the society must also work in accordance with the by-laws of the society (§2)
