    As the 22nd President of the Korean Spinal Neurosurgery Society (KSNS). I will keep pace with you to seek the development of our Society and to promote the rights and interest of the Society members at the beginning point of a new history that will surpass the development of the past 30 years.

    I take this opportunity to express heart-felt thanks to the late Honorary President Jung Hwan-young, Honorary Presidents Kim Young-soo, Choi Sun-kil and Kim Hyung-jib, former Presidents, including Joh Yong-eun, and more than 1700 members.

    It is a great honor that I assume the presidency of the world-class Society. At the same time, I feel deeply responsible for the Society. I will do my best to seek the development of the Society and to promote the rights and interests of the Society members on the basis of the achievements of former presidents and senior members during my one-year term.

    The Society has achieved growth in qualitative and quantitative terms since its establishment in 1987. The Society changed its name in 1999 and was registered at the Korean Research Foundation in 2008. The Society is growing into a more professional and competitive organization together with six sub-societies. The Society is recognized as an international spine society in Asia, US and Europe as well with the devotion of the members. In the future, I will take the initiative to make it possible for the Society to continuously make academic exchange with the world's top spine societies and to seek more diverse forms of exchange. Also, I will enable the Society to grow into as a world-class leading spine group and to become a cornerstone of the development of domestic medical policy.

    There has been a remarkable growth in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal diseases with the efforts of the Society’s members. However, our medical environment becomes increasingly difficult day after day. The members' endeavors are not rewarded properly with the impropriety and reduction of medical fees, the negative perspective towards spine surgery and the introduction of new medical systems. Nevertheless, I believe that we will overcome this crisis with a determined attitude. The Society will listen to the members, cooperate with other relevant organizations, and protect the rights and interests of the members.

    Let's combine our efforts to create a more brilliant history than that of the past 30 years. I will stand by the Society's members all the time.

    Thank you.

    September 2017
    Geun-Sung SONG,
    22st President, the Korean Spinal Neurosurgery Society
