NSF operates medical mission trips that bring together volunteer spine surgeons and medical professionals, NuVasive, Inc. and program partners to help patients today while building sustainable spine treatment programs that advance the quality of spine care tomorrow.

Our Model

The NSF Medical Mission Program bridges financial, geographical, cultural, and resource barriers that prevent patients from receiving the spine surgery they desperately need, by teaming up with program partners that fit the needs of each medical mission location.

NSF believes in continuity of care for patients and the local healthcare systems we work in. For this reason, resources are focused on select medical mission locations and program partnerships that allow us to operate recurring trips that not only help patients today, but have the long-term goal of building spine care programs.

Helping patients today, while building for tomorrow.

Who Is Involved

NSF teams up with volunteer spine surgeons and medical professionals, NuVasive, Inc. and program partners to provide direct patient care to hundreds of adults and children each year, while working towards the long-term goal of developing sustainable spine treatment and care at each location.
