About Us

Our Mission

The NuVasive Spine Foundation (NSF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating mission trips that bring life-changing surgery, training and technology to under-resourced communities around the world.

NSF partners with NuVasive, Inc., spine surgeons, like-minded nonprofits and in-country medical professionals, governments and hospitals through its mission trip program.

NSF is not a granting organization – Instead, NSF focuses on building partnerships to lead and support mission trips. NSF is solely focused on facilitating mission trips and does not engage in event sponsorship’s or related charitable donations.

As a nonprofit, NSF funds mission trips through fundraising and utilizes donated product (instruments and implants) and services (neuromonitoring and product support) from NuVasive Inc.

Our Focus

Providing life-changing spine surgery to individuals with limited access to high quality medical treatment.

Working with surgeons to develop sustainable spine treatment programs and advance the quality of spine care in disadvantaged communities.

Upholding our responsibility to leverage our expertise in spine care to give back to local and global communities.
