SORL President’s Words

In the name of Allah,

the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Peace and blessing on the last Prophet, his family and his companions. Let me begin by welcoming you to the 11th International Saudi Otorhinolaryngology Conference. It is my pleasure and honor to start by thanking the president of the conference, Dr. Musaed Alzahrani, for his contribution and rewarding efforts to make this conference a success.

I would also like to thank the members of the Board of Directors of the Saudi Society and the young scientific committee headed by Dr. Naser Aljizan who will, in shaa Allah, come up with a brilliant scientific program.

We fancy the idea of holding this conference in AlKhobar in order to strengthen the bonds of scientific and professional alliance between our society and the various regions of our precious kingdom.

This annual forum will be launched all over the country, to give us great ambitions to emulate the aspirations of the King, the Custodian of the two holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz. The conference will devote its efforts to bring the ENT field in KSA to a greater level. The scientific research encourages our fellow physicians to take part in these scientific experiments to show our beloved kingdom that it deserves to be known as one of the progressive countries.

In conclusion, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to all of you for your presence and generous contribution to the success of this year’s conference activities, and my sincerest gratitude for accepting the invitation. May Allah bring you mercy, peace and blessings!


Prof. Abdulrahman Hagr

President of the Saudi Otolaryngology Society
