Mission Trips

Each year the NuVasive Spine Foundation™ supports more than a dozen trips to
disadvantaged communities around the globe to perform life-changing spine surgery for
hundreds of patients. Additionally, we focus on developing sustainable spine care programs and advancing spine surgery technology and education, by training local surgeons.

Mission Types Include:

NSF Missions: We host surgical missions around the world to perform surgery on patients in need and train local spine surgeons in NuVasive® innovative techniques

Sponsored Missions: We donate NuVasive products, cash grants and/or neuromonitoring services to support mission trips of other spine focused non-profit organizations

U.S Patient Assistance: We provide product donations to qualifying individuals in the U.S.
