It gives me great pleasure to announce and welcome you all to the most exciting event in our orthopedic community in Saudi Arabia.
On behalf of the Saudi Orthopaedic Association, we proudly invite you to the 7th International conference for the Saudi Orthopedic Association which will be held in Jeddah on May 13th – 15th, 2017. It will be three-days with different activities under the themes of trauma, hip and knees Arthroplasty. This event is a product of an enormous collective effort from the association members and committees.
We will learn the updates and advancements from our local, regional and international speakers. We will share the experience through lectures, debates, discussions, demonstration and workshop. It will provide you with great opportunities to have an idea about other experiences from overseas too.
We sincerely hope that all attendees will benefit from the scientific material that will be presented in the meeting. We encourage you all to participate in the discussion and
we look forward to our annual SOA meetings becoming more successful year after year.
Jeddah is a beautiful city located in the middle of the eastern coast of the red sea known as the Bride of the Red Sea (founded 3000 years ago) and is considered the economic and tourism capital of the country. Its population is estimated around 3.4 million and it is the
second largest city after Riyadh.
Jeddah has grown during the last two decades, which has made the city a center for money and business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a major and important port for exporting non-oil related goods as well as importing domestic needs.
