Dear Potential Donor,
I have donated a large part of my professional career toward the education of spine surgery fellowship training of young neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons as well as those earlier in residency training and in medical school. I am passionate about creating the best young surgeon-scientists and many of our graduates are currently at major universities and centers- of-excellence throughout the country and across the globe.
Our research and education program provides young trainees, a true “cutting edge” of modern day spinal surgery that teaches excellent judgment, surgical skill, and creativity through innovation with compassion for those patients truly in need of our expertise.
Our Foundation was created to provide additional research and educational support for these trainees that is not available through local, state or federal funding sources to advance their careers and become the leaders of the next generation in resolving spinal disorders. We have a very low overhead organization with a volunteer Board of Directors, minimal staff and expenses to assure donated funds go directly to support the trainees. We are also in need of donations to support global outreach that includes under served countries and US Army hospitals abroad.
Thank you in advance for your support.
J. Patrick Johnson, MD
