Egyptian Arthroscopy Association - History of EGAA

History of EGAA

about

A group of Egyptian arthroscopic surgeons gathered under the umbrella of the Egyptian Orthopaedic Association (EOA ) to form a sub-specialty group interested in the field of arthroscopy and sports injuries. This group was called the Egyptian Group for Arthroscopy and Sports Injuries (EGASI). The early members of the EGASI who were the pioneers of arthroscopic surgery in Egypt established regular activities in form of a quarterly clinical meeting that was held at one of the Egyptian universities.

In December 2009 a larger group of arthroscopic surgeons who represented all universities, teaching and military hospitals attended a meeting at Ain Shams University conference hall.

This group includes:

Different thoughts and ideas have been presented and summarized in the Following:

• There is increasing number of Egyptian orthopaedic surgeons who have been specialized in arthroscopic surgery

• There is a need for regular educational programs and scientific activities to enable surgeons to have continuous development and creation of well-trained new generation.

They have all agreed to establish an Egyptian Arthroscopy Association. The founding members for this association were 14 surgeons who continued their meetings.

A set of goals have been defined:

  1. It is essential to establish an umbrella and governing body to represent the Egyptian arthroscopic surgeons both nationally and internationally.
  2. Training is the key for developing safe and skilled surgeons. Therefore, one of our primary goals is to ensure a high standard of education and training to all orthopaedic surgeons especially those interested in the field of arthroscopy.
  3. We are committed to ensure safety to patients. Therefore, we provide guidance about the best practice based on evidence to all surgeons who contact us through online and direct contact with the association’s office.
  4. Advancement in the field of arthroscopy has global interest. Our vision is to expand our activity to cover the Arab World and the whole of the Middle East. This will hopefully create bridges of communication between surgeons in this region and the rest of the world.
