The Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Conference ( https://www.posc-me.com/) for the Middle East will be held in its third year once again in Dubai from the 16th to the 18th of October. The concept of high quality instructional courses and seminars combined with Free papers sessions has attracted many pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons from the region in the past year.
This year’s conference will follow the same concept, creating an exceptional educational environment as well as a platform for paper presentations and interactive sessions . In addition, the conference will be hosting a full day pre-seminar on DDH, organized by the Hip Dysplasia Institute. Main topics of the main conference this year will be on Pediatric Spine on Day 1 and Foot and Ankle on Day 2. We have invited prominent international and regional speakers and are supported by all major Pediatric Orthopaedic Societies, making this event the most important meeting for Pediatric Orthopaedics in the Middle East.
I would like to welcome all Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons and interested physicians to participate by presenting papers or attending the meeting as a delegate. The conference this year will also host the inaugural meeting of MEPOS, the Middle East Orthopaedic Society to which I would like to encourage all Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons to join as member. More information on the society will be available shortly at www.mepos.me.
Hoping for your active participation at POSC 2014.
Dr. Marc F. Sinclair
