Welcome Message from President

      This year, the traditional ISMISS Turkey Congress, which will be hosted in beautiful Antalya again, will be jointly organized with the third ACMISST Congress.
      At this joint meeting, we will witness the collaboration of spinal surgeons from all over the world, who have backgrounds in Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery. This collaboration will play an important role in the continued education of spinal surgery in an interdisciplinary manner.
      During our joint meeting, in addition to cadaveric course, we will offer an interdisciplinary program. With the support of select national and international experts, a diverse range of topics will be discussed including anatomy, anesthesia, physical therapy and rehabilitation, radiology and algology.
      Remembering reading the first ACMISST invitation with enthusiasm, a bright group was clearly forming. As it is always said, long journeys begin with small steps. These small steps, expanded through the culture and scientific richness of the second ACMISST in Japan, are now spreading across Asia into Anatolia, the meeting place of Asia and Europe in Turkey.
      Presently, the majority of influential spinal surgeons dedicated to Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery in Turkey are joining together in scientific collaboration, both professionally and in spirit. Together with our valued international friends, we are preparing for this meeting with warmth, respect and excitement for everyone, who values spinal surgery and especially minimally invasive interventions.
      We have begun the countdown, and with your valued support we aim to host a great congress. The congress location, Antalya, a paradise with a historical touch, where blue waters dance with lush green mountains. As it is also one of the premier golf destinations in the world, we will hold an open golf tournament for all participants during the congress.
      With our scientific accomplishments, in an atmosphere steeped in history and natural beauty, we will go forward stronger into the next congress. We would like to thank those in advance for all their long journeys, sleepless nights and tireless efforts.
      We look forward to welcoming you in Antalya,

Sincerely Yours,

                                Ali Fahir                              Tarık YAZAR
