Spine surgery

National Quality Registry for Spine Surgery (Swespine)

Registry category: Diseases of the movement organs

Certification level: 1

Central personal data controller (CPUA): Region Jönköping

Overall aim: to register patient-reported results after all spine surgery procedures performed in Sweden.

All surgical conditions of the spine can be registered, as well as all types of surgical procedures, except for fractures, which was transferred to the Fracture Registry in 2015. Basic demographic data is registered, and most results are then based on patient-reported data (PROM and PREM) concerning e.g. pain, function, quality of life, working situation and expectations after 1, 2, 5 and 10 years.
