President of the Saudi Orthopaedic Association

On behalf of the administration and members, I am pleased to welcome you to the Saudi Orthopedic Association (SOA). For over a decade, the SOA has had the privilege of serving the orthopedic and public community through enriching the knowledge about orthopedic surgery and guiding practitioners to provide an outstanding care toward patients. It is an honor to be elected as the new President of the SOA; however, the greatness of such responsibility cannot be denied.

I strongly believe the SOA unites us for a noble cause, and despite the difficulties and challenges one can face, we have always been able to achieve our goals. We will continue educating the orthopedic surgeons and other healthcare providers based on up-to-date scientific evidence and recommendationsو and we will help in taking care of orthopedic patients in the best way possible. We will raise public awareness about orthopedic surgery and facilitate the communication with the help and expertise of specialists in our field by utilizing the latest state of the art technology.

I have no doubts that enrolling all involved individuals in the process of decision making is important for a better future. Thus, I look forward to receiving from your comments and feedbacks. I appreciate your invaluable contribution to our mission.
