21 January 2016

 Dear Society member

On behalf of myself and the EXCO, we hope that 2016 will be a good year – both professionally and personally.

It is that time of the year again where we plan and finalize the annual SASS Congress for 2016.

This year the congress will be at the C.S.I.R. in Pretoria which is very centrally located and we expect a good attendance like the previous record year of 2015.

This year the academic theme will be “Cervical pathologies and the treatment and avoidance of complications”.

We will also have a special session on “Chronic pain and innovative treatment options”. 

Our local faculty and invited international faculty will present a stimulating and thought provoking program.

The following international speakers have accepted:

Prof. Koller (Germany)
Prof. Thomé (Austria)
Dr. John Duff (Switzerland)
Dr. Rick Sasso (USA)

We hope to see all members and friends in May 2016.

Spinal greetings

Ettienne Coetzee
