The Radiosurgery Society® (RSS) is an international, medical professional, non-profit society consisting of physicians, physicists and healthcare professionals dedicated to advancing the education, science and clinical practice of stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic body radiation therapy and advancing therapies.
The purpose of the RSS is to champion the evolution of science, clinical practices, and technological innovations in the fields of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and advancing therapies by providing an international forum for collaboration and education, and encouraging global adoption of techniques offering optimum safety and efficacy for patients.
RSS was founded in 2002 as the CyberKnife Society by a consortium of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and medical physicists. In 2011, the society was renamed the Radiosurgery Society®, to reflect the expansion of therapeutic applications in the field and the expertise and diversity of its society members around the world.
The RSS represents over 700 members in 45 countries from varied surgical and oncological specialties. As the world’s largest society focused on SRS, SBRT and advancing therapies, it manages the longest established patient registry dedicated to SRS and SBRT, exceeding 29,000 cases in early 2020. Among its activities, the society hosts an annual scientific meeting; sponsors educational and research programs; and provides extensive online research and collaborative opportunities for the global medical community and industry experts.
