Dear Colleagues,
The Middle East Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (MEPOS) will hold its 6th Annual Meeting from the 24 – 26 October 2019 in Dubai.

For this year, the scientific committee has put together an exciting and informative program which will feature a series of international and local speakers sharing keynote lectures, instructional courses, cadaveric workshops and case discussion sessions.
The two day main congress will have an extensive program that covers numerous sessions including Upper Extremity/Neuromuscular Session, Hip Sessions, International Guest Association Sessions, Roundtable on Idiopathic Scoliosis with both Surgeons and Physiotherapists, Trauma Sessions and more.

A dedicated physiotherapy program will be running over 2 days in parallel to the main congress and will focus on a variety of topics including Physiotherapy Post-Operative Rehabilitation for Paediatric Orthopaedics, New Techniques for Neuromuscular Physiotherapy, Updates on Trauma and Rehabilitation and more. This seminar programme has been designed to cater to the needs of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and other allied professionals. The sessions will provide in-depth insights into various paediatric orthopaedic, musculoskeletal and developmental disorders from a physiotherapy and occupational therapy perspective.

A pre-conference workshop will also provide delegates with a hands-on experience into different approaches in surgery, and fractures intra and extra articular.

A lunch symposium will provide an opportunity for interactive product sessions, demonstrations and live Q&A with innovative solution providers.

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 2019.

Kind regards,

Dr. Marc Sinclair
Chairman – MEPOS
Dr. Christiana Savvidou
General Secretary - MEPOS
