HARMS

Professor Juergen Harms is a world-renowned spinal deformity surgeon in Germany. In 1995, he was a co-founder of the Harms Study Group and played an instrumental role in guiding the group’s initial research plans. Over the past two decades, he has remained engaged and excited about the group’s contributions to the literature and scientific community on new spinal deformity surgery techniques and treatment outcomes.
