Yemen is located at the southern entrance of the Red Sea. There is a lot to see and do in Yemen. Sanaa is one of the most ancient cities in the world. With a population of 26 million and half a million births per year. This led to high incidence of spinal deformities. Adding to the problem is the high rate of road traffic accidents and firearm injuries with subsequent spinal fractures and post fractures deformities. The host is the Saudi German Hospital in Sanaa.
The coordinator is Professor Youssry Elhawary, MD from Cairo, Egypt. Both patients and surgeons need fellow physicians to visit, teach, train and treat at this site.
The Scoliosis Research Society provides information on these web pages regarding research and links as a public service. The SRS believes that patients should contact their treating physician about the relevance of any information listed on the site prior to proceeding with any particular treatment. Just as no two individuals are exactly alike, no two patients with a spinal deformity are the same. Therefore, your spinal deformity surgeon will be the most important source of information about the management of your particular spinal problem.
