NuVasive Spine Foundation™ is dedicated to providing life-changing spine surgery to individuals in disadvantaged communities in the U.S. and abroad, and advancing spine surgery technology in these communities by training local surgeons.
The Foundation was born out of one of the key attributes embraced by the NuVasive Family — having an “attitude of gratitude”. This core value was actualized in 2009 when the company developed the NuVasive Spine Foundation as a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting members of the NuVasive Family who were in need, as well as local and national charitable organizations. As the Foundation evolved, it began to focus on supporting medical missions to developing countries. In 2012, the NuVasive Spine Foundation sponsored 10 mission trips across the globe, supported over 110 surgeries and donated nearly $2.9 million in spine surgery products.
In 2013 and beyond, the NuVasive Spine Foundation is solely focused on supporting medical missions abroad, training spine surgeons in disadvantaged communities, and providing assistance to spine patients in the U.S. The Foundation looks forward to increasing its scope and impact as it continues to grow.
