Sanaa, Yemen

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.
