On behalf of the Egyptian Society for Surgery of the Hand and Microsurgery ESSHM, it gives me great pleasure and pride, to invite you all, surgeons and hand therapists, to the IVth ESSHM Congress that will take place in Luxor, February 1-3, 2011. Luxor is located in Upper Egypt, and is the site of the ancient city of Thebes. Luxor, often called the world’s greatest open air museum, has a number of historic areas that are very popular tourist destinations including the Temple of Luxor, the Temple of Karnak, as well as the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. The Organizing Committee intends to prepare and deliver an unforgettable scientific event, due to the presence of many invited world known specialists who will offer pearls of their wisdom and creativity to the young and enthusiastic colleagues. The program is going to combine symposia, free paper sessions and workshops, which will cover the specific interests of all participants. A special emphasis will be dedicated to microsurgery of peripheral nerves and brachial plexus as the main theme of this congress. We are looking forwards to seeing you in Luxor, to share this wonderful scientific and social event. I am certain that the Congress will be rich and fruitful in each of its aspects, both scientific as convivial and I am also certain that Luxor will happily surprise those who have not yet had the chance to visit this city which is so rich in spirit and history in a country with such hospitality and warmth. I wish you all a positive work experience and a pleasant stay. Sincerely Tarek El-Gammal, M.D. ESSHM President Professor of Orthopedics Chief, Hand & Reconstructive Microsurgery Unit Assiut University Faculty of Medicine Assiut, Egypt
