The third regional congress of the Iranian Orthopedic Association will be held April 26-28 at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, said Dr. Ali Endalib, scientific secretary of the congress. “Low back pain is one of the most common problems in orthopedics and only less than 10% of patients experience satisfactory pain relief after surgery,” he said, adding that many nonsurgical treatments are also required to relieve back pain and doctors should avoid unnecessary surgical treatments, Mehr News Agency reported. Pediatric orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, and joint replacement of upper and lower extremities are among the important subjects to be discussed at the confab, he added.
