A Joint Announcement from the RSS & The International Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society

We are pleased to announce that the International Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society (ISRS) and the Radiosurgery Society (RSS) entered a mutual endorsement collaboration to promote and strengthen research and educational programs dedicated to advancing the knowledge of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). As part of the agreement, each society will hold respective alternating bi-annual scientific meetings, with each society supporting and endorsing the respective meetings. Having non-competing bi-annual meetings allows each society to be more fiscally responsible with respect to the time, resources, and financial support of our members, supporters and stakeholders as well as strengthen the academic, scientific and research programs.

The societies will remain as independent organizations and will maintain separate Bylaws, Boards of Directors and membership. The partnership will help strengthen existing relationships, maximize the ability to generate and disseminate knowledge, advance science, and continue to maintain the highest standards and ensure the safety of SRS/SBRT. We look forward to working together, meeting new colleagues, and building new programs that will benefit the membership of both societies and patients receiving SRS and SBRT.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the meeting in May.

Samuel Ryu, MD - Board President, ISRS
Anand Mahadevan, MD - Board President, RSS
