Message from the President

Dear colleagues and friends,

With great pleasure and honor I herewith invite you to attend the 3rd Biennial Meeting of the Middle East Society for Sexual Medicine. We will be thrilled to have you joining us and wish to express our sincere appreciation for your support of this meeting.

We recognize the importance of your expertise, as leaders in the field of sexual medicine, and believe that this is an opportune time to conduct relevant discussion on major advances in the fields. The science and practice of the male and female sexual dysfunction have enjoyed great progress and new innovations over the past few years. In spite of the increased educational activities to the public and to the professionals, sexual disorders remained under-diagnosed and under-treated.

Our Scientific Committee has set up a very vivid program addressing a wide array of male and female sexual disorders from different specialties and prospects and through a multidisciplinary approach. We will be hearing from local and international world-renowned experts recognized for their expertise in promotion of both basic and clinical aspects of sexual medicine. The presentations will demonstrate the latest medical and surgical advances and innovations in the field of sexual medicine. Distinguished speakers will discuss the challenging clinical scenarios and will emphasize the rationale for fostering a greater sense of patient care in this vibrant field. Program attendees will gain the information and skills to approach exploration and treatment of what constitutes ‘best practice’ in the field of sexual medicine. Participants will also have the opportunity to provide feedback and to contribute in discussions throughout all sessions.

On behalf of the Middle East Society for Sexual Medicine, I would like to thank you for your participation. We look forward to welcome you all in the magnificent city of Cairo. We appreciate your interest in this inspiring, and enjoyable meeting and we are convinced that it will be of significant added value to your practice.

Sincerely yours,

Ahmed El-Sakka, MD
President of MESSM


Message from the Scientific Committee

The Middle East Society for Sexual Medicine (MESSM) is a unique group of specialists interested in Sexual Medicine. This year’s Biennial Meeting is an example of the integration of expertise and exchange of knowledge between physicians having first hand involvement with the Middle Eastern couple’s sexual difficulties. The meeting will take place in Cairo, the largest city in the Middle East and the place where cultures meet. The MESSM has always realized the special characteristics and needs of Middle Eastern patients and this year’s program aims to bridge the gap of information in a background of the international experience. We have invited speakers from the Urological, Andrological, Family Medicine and Psychiatric disciplines to tackle problems like sex education in the Middle East, media coverage and female sexual dysfunction. Experts will present state-of-the-art lectures and videos on erectile dysfunction treatment, controversies involving Peyronie’s disease management and the ongoing debate on the safety of androgen replacement therapy.

The meeting comes after the 4th International Consultation on Sexual Medicine (ICSM) in Madrid, Spain. We take the opportunity of having several MESSM members being part of that pivotal event to present a digest of the most recent evidence-based recommendations in the field of sexual medicine. To present pertinent information on the practice of Sexual Medicine, not only an organization like the Egyptian Urological Association is invited for a dedicated session, both the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) as well as the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM) wil contribute as well.  

The program will provide an opportunity for practitioners interested in Sexual Medicine to interact with local and international experts to further identify problems unique to the region and enhance the progress towards better treatment strategies. We invite you to become part of the experience and look forward to meet you in Cairo.
