Paul Harrington one of the most famous spine surgeons of the 20th century. He deve-loped an spinal instrumentation system and correction concept for spinal deformities. Alt-hough Harrington instrumentation was not the first metallic internal device for spinal defor-mity, it was the one that succeeded. He paid big attention to education and he spent great effort to share his knowledge and experience with spine surgeons. His pioneering legacy has a great importance in the history of spine surgery.
