Welcome to the 1st Saudi Spine Society Annual Conference
On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the 1st Saudi Spine Society Annual Conference which will be held on December 17-19, 2017, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Through continuous innovations in medical science and technology, Surgical and Non-surgical Spine interventions have advanced into an even broader variety, giving spine care practitioners a wider range of options for intervention and treatment throughout the invasive and non-invasive management processes.
The main theme of SSSAC 2017 will be “Promoting Excellence in Multidisciplinary Spine Care”. This theme brings to mind seeking out guidance-in-controversy and wisdom in-judgment when deciding for our clinical challenges, the promotion of team-based medicine and joint contributions to patient welfare. Multidisciplinary approach optimizes our practice as we retool spine care for the twenty-first century.
Our Scientific Sessions will explore various aspects of pathologies affecting the spine, particularly the two main subjects chosen this year; Degenerative Spine Disease and Spine Trauma. Latest technologies will be addressed in full reviews and scientific debates throughout the conference. Leading researchers for academia, industry and hospitals will present their recent achievements in technologies and clinical studies discussing their most exciting development. The program will consist of plenary lectures by top national and international spine surgeons and oral presentations in parallel sessions featuring speakers from Saudi Arabia and abroad
The first day of the conference however, is dedicated for preconference workshops. These workshops will address different aspects of spine care including spine surgery, rehabilitation, pain management, radiology, neurophysiology, nursing, and more. This will be a great opportunity in advancing our knowledge and practice in the constantly changing field of spine care.
As aforementioned, this outstanding scientific program will be set in the sunny city of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Weather is excellent around this time of year. With an abundant auxiliary program, numerous social events including the Gala dinner with many traditional and local presentations, Middle Eastern food, and the taste of Arabian coffee and dates, this is one meeting you cannot afford to miss!
Make your arrangements today and join us in this great venue!

Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, is one of the fast-growing cities in the world, having developed over a relatively short period of time. In Riyadh, you can see the combination between the historical and traditional scenes and modern achievement.
The word “Riyadh” is the plural word of an Arabic word “Rawdah”, which means a place that is covered with gardens, meadows, and trees. Riyadh was named with this name because of its far history. It was built on ruins of Hijr city of Yamama region, which was rich with water, gardens, and palm dates and had the most fertile soil of Arabia in the old days. Riyadh was the center of unification of the other regions of the Kingdom. From Riyadh, King Abdul Aziz, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia, began to establish a unified state under the banner of monotheism.
