President’s Message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association (APOA), I welcome you to the website of 21st APOA Congress to be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre between 23 – 26 September 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Congress Committee led by Congress Chairman Dato’ Syed A L Alsagoff, plan to formulate a scientific programme that will focus on Symposia and Instructional lectures given by distinguished speakers from across the world. The scientific sessions will be dedicated to the fields of orthopaedic trauma, sports injuries, pediatric orthopaedics, orthopaedic oncology, hip, knee, spine, hand & wrist, shoulder & elbow, foot & ankle, general orthopedics and orthopedic research. This mega event event will attract global leaders to participate and exchange expertise and to launch brilliant new ideas together.

APOA 2020 will present to the young and budding orthopaedic surgeons, an opportunity to interact with experts from across the globe. It will be a unique chance to share and enhance knowledge on the latest international research and developments. Apart from the invigorating scientific programme, APOA 2020 will also offer its attendees an unforgettable cultural and gastronomic experience. Malaysia is ‘truly Asia’. In Malaysia there is no meeting without eating; food is in the variety and people have good taste for food. So come and savour a bite.

On behalf of the central organising committee, I would like to extend a sincere invitation to you all, to join us at APOA 2020. I am sure that this scientific extravaganza, under the dynamic stewardship of Dr. David Choon, will advance orthopaedic knowledge and forge new friendships.

I look forward to meeting you in the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur.

Prof. Mahmut Nedim Doral, MD

APOA / President
