Professor Salman Sharif
President of the Society

Dear Colleagues,
Middle East Spine Society (MESpine) is a very young society and I invite all spine surgeons in this part of the world to be a part of our growing scientific and educational association. The idea of the society has been founded during an international conference (1st Middle East Neurosurgical Symposia) organized at Istanbul in April 2010. The official foundation and first executive committee was built in 2011 in Cairo.

The major aim of the MESpine is to develop and promote the art and science of spine surgery and take it to much higher levels. After four main meetings and many courses and activities in different arenas, the society gets more mature. I am sure it will gain more power with contributions of members.
