Dear colleagues,

The International Turkish Spine Congress, which we traditionally hold every two years, could not be held in 2021 due to the pandemic and we held this congress in 2022. You all remember that we had a very satisfying congress after the pandemic. In order to catch the old rhythm in the congress calendar, we decided to hold the 2023 congress on time. The ease of transportation in İzmir and the richness of the social opportunities in the surrounding area are always considered as an attractive factor for the participants. For this reason, we will hold this meeting again in Izmir and at the same hotel.

The main topic of the congress will be “Deformity in the Spine”. Our main goal is to consider spinal deformity from every angle and present it to the participants with a multidisciplinary perspective. We are confident that we will offer a satisfying education, especially in pediatric deformity, thanks to the academic contributions of the leading names in our country and in the world. In addition, the program will include a half-day symposium with the contributions of the SRS (Scoliosis Research Society). Current information on 'Early Onset Scoliosis' will be discussed in detail at the symposium.

You will also find many interactive sessions and social programs at the XV. International Turkish Spine Congress. We invite you all to this scientific activity, which we believe you will enjoy. Hope to meet again in another beautiful İzmir in May.
