The 4th edition of the International Advanced Orthopaedic Congress which was held in Dubai on 18 – 20 May 2017 was great sucess.

With its concept of high quality instructional courses and seminars combined with free paper sessions, the last edition of IAOC attracted more than 230 leading international and regional orthopaedic and plastic surgeons, consultants, specialists, orthopaedic nurses, physiotherapists and trainees.

The congress created an exceptional educational environment as well as an international platform for paper presentations and interactive discussion and debates. In addition to two days of the main conference, the congress also featured a series of pre-congress workshops and instructional courses including cadaveric workshops. The congress also featured for the first time a cadaveric course dedicated to physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

The details of the 2018 will be published soon.
