Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the organising committee, it is my great pleasure to announce the 5th edition of the Middle East Pediatric Orthopaedic Society (MEPOS) Annual Meeting to be held in Sofitel Downtown Dubai, UAE from 11 – 13 October 2018.

The scientific programme for MEPOS Annual Meeting 2018 has been developed to provide you with an innovative and comprehensive overview on the latest research developments in Pediatric Orthopaedics and what are the advanced global best practices in the detection, management and treatment of various pediatric orthopaedic conditions.

This year we have been able to put together an inspiring programme with keynote lectures, free papers, case studies and pre-conference workshops that will allow you to update your knowledge and skills, learn from new and emerging research and interact with international practitioners who feel passionately about pediatric orthopedics. The conference this year focuses on the pathologies prevalent in the region on foot, spine and hip disorders.
In addition to the two days of the main conference, the event this year will also feature a series of pre-conference workshops on scoliosis correction, casting and hip ultrasound.

The 3rd edition of the Middle East Pediatric Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Seminar will also be held alongside the MEPOS Annual Meeting 2018.

Many distinguished Orthopedic Surgeons, Consultants and Specialists have joined as faculty members for the MEPOS Annual Meeting 2018. We hope that you will be able to join us this year and be a part of the discussions that will encourage further developments in the field of pediatric orthopaedics in the region.

Looking forward to welcoming to the MEPOS Annual Meeting 2018.

Kind regards,

Dr. Zaid Al-Aubaidi
Pediatric Orthopedic and Pediatric Spine Surgeon
