Cordial Invitation and Welcome

Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman has been blessed with the opportunity to host the 4th Arab Spine Conference. The conference is being organized from 22nd to 24th February 2018 at the new OCEC Convention Centre and hotel accommodation will be at the Crowne Plaza Muscat Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre.

I am immensely pleased and honored to cordially invite colleagues from the Arab world and beyond – the spinal surgeons, neurosurgery and orthopedic surgeons, beginners in the vast field of spinal surgery, residents in neurosurgery, orthopedics and spinal surgery, nursing in the field of spinal surgery and friends in rehabilitation and physiotherapy specialties to join this spinal surgery deliberations at Muscat.
The Organizing Committee is working hard to come out with an outstanding scientific program as well as social events during this 3-day-festival on S P I N E.

I would like to suggest to get registered for the conference and submit the abstracts of your clinical and research work in the field of spinal surgery and management of spine pathologies. It is a golden opportunity to share the experience, to learn from leading surgeons in the field and to teach the future generations of spinal surgeons. Therefore, please mark the date on your calendar for the next year and start planning the trip to Muscat, a truly blessed and beautiful land in the Gulf peninsula.

Come with the family ….. apart from the scientific program, there is much more in the social and site seeing aspect of the conference. Accompanying delegates, ladies and kids will have more than enough to enjoy their stay at Muscat, while we will discuss the scientific and academic issues.
Once again, extending a very warm welcome to Muscat and looking forward to seeing you all.
