Dear friends, members of MMESA

After returning back from our last yearly congress which took place in Catania / Italy, and after taking in charge my new position as President of MMESA I want first of all to thank you all for the trust you gave me by this election and wish to be able during the coming year to continue the hard work done by all previous Presidents of our Association in the aim of promoting the collaboration between the surgeons of the different Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and surrounding countries in the field of endoscopic surgery, and giving the young generation of surgeons in these countries the opportunity to learn and train the new techniques. With their hard work MMESA found its stable and strong place between the different international medical associations.

Second, I want to express my deep thanks to our friend Prof. Dr. Domenico Russello for his warm hospitality and generosity during the XI MMESA Congress in Catania which was one of the most successful MMESA congresses with a perfect organization and a very high scientific level of the presentations and live surgery. We will all keep a very pleasant memory of our stay in Catania.

My deep thanks also for my friend Dr. Jose Schiappa who always gave me a big support especially during the organization of the 9th congress in Damascus 2009.

Not forgetting Prof. Gian Luigi Melotti, our Honorary President, for his commitment to MMESA and the efforts he put to establish and promote this Association, and the support he gave in the organization of all MMESA congresses.

I also appreciate the work and efforts of all our friends, founders of MMESA, like Prof. Cavit Avci, Dr. Miguel Angel Carbajo, Dr. Georges Timsit, Dr. Faheem El-Bassyoni, Dr. Hechmatollah Kalbasi and all the others and wish that they continue to support our Association despite any misunderstanding.

Herewith I ask, in my name and your name, our valuable friend Prof Cavit Avci to reconsider his resignation from the Scientific and Educational Committee. We all appreciate his hard work on promoting Telemedicine and want him to continue with us to achieve one the main goals of our association which is the tele-education for young surgeon.

I also wish our friend Dr. Khalil Zayadin, the President elect, all the success in organizing the XII MMESA congress in Amman / Jordan next year. I will put all my efforts in supporting him in this hard task.

Once again many thanks for all of you…

Best warm regards

Dr. Tarif Al-Aita
President of MMESA
