Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It gives me great pleasure as the President of the Mediterranean Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Society (MIPS) to cordially invite you to the Second MIPS Educational course in Sicily, Italy. The venue is the picturesque and popular tourist city of Enna located roughly at the centre of Sicily towering above the surrounding beautiful countryside as a magnificent panoramic viewpoint 931 metres above sea level. The meeting will be held on 7,8 July, 2017 in Hotel Federico II, Enna. The scientific theme is “Recent Advances in Pelvic Floor Reconstructive Surgery”. Further information can be found on the meeting website: http://www.mipsnet.org

The Host Chairs, Dr. Biagio Adile (MIPS Past-President) and Dr. Giuseppe La Ferrera, have organized an excellent course to build on the outstanding success of the first annual MIPS meeting held in Noto in December 2013 when MIPS was officially born with Dr. Biagio Adile as the first President. The organizing committee has endeavoured to ensure that the scientific programme is specific to both physician educational needs and patient care priorities in Mediterranean countries.  The course content covers all aspects of female Pelvic Floor Dysfunctions from urodynamic investigations to genito-urinary fistulas with a special emphasis on minimally invasive surgical procedures and novel surgical techniques. In addition, there is a dedicated live surgery session on various pelvic floor reconstructive and anti-incontinence operations. This year, we have speakers from different parts of Sicily and of Italy as well as renowned MIPS Faculty and we would like to thank our Italian colleagues for their contribution to the educational mission of MIPS.

As an incontinence and pelvic floor care provider, we would like to invite you to attend our course in order to further the collaboration between incontinence physicians working in the Mediterranean region with a consequent positive impact on incontinence care and service delivery in the region. Biagio, Giuseppe and I are very much looking forward to welcome you in Enna in July, 2017.
