Dear colleagues and friends around the world:
It is with great pleasure and honor to welcome you all to the official website of our society the middle eastern society for stereotactic and functional neurosurgery (MSSFN). The MSSFN was established in 2016 to be the main society representing stereotactic and functional neurosurgeons and related neurosurgical subspecialties in the middle east. Our society’s mission is to support the development of stereotactic and functional neurosurgical care for the benefit of patients, physicians and societies, utilizing education, research and advocacy to foster the highest quality, ethical, values, and evidence-based stereotactic and functional neurosurgical practice. The society has active members from more than twenty countries in the middle east and around the world. Our activities focus on neurosurgical management of pathology like movement disorders, epilepsy, stereotactic radiotherapy, surgery for psychiatric disorders, pain and more. We act under the auspice of the world society for stereotactic and functional neurosurgery (WSSFN). The 1 st society conference was held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 2016. The success of the event encouraged all of us to organize the second meeting in Cairo, Egypt, in February 2019, which was another very successful conference.
Keeping up with the theme of our first conference “Bringing the World Together”, I would like to welcome you all to support our small society for the benefits of our valuable patients and neurosurgeons.
