President’s Message

Dear Colleagues,

We have the honor of inviting you to one of the most important Orthopaedic Meetings in the ASEAN region for 2014.  Mark your calendars:  November 27-29, 2014, Radisson Blu Hotel, Cebu, Philippines!

On these auspicious days, the Philippine Orthopaedic Association will host a joint meeting of the ASEAN Orthopaedic Association (34th AOA), the ASEAN Arthroplasty Association (8th AAA), and the ASEAN Society for Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy (2nd ASSA). The theme is arthritis and the Scientific Committee has prepared a program both comprehensive and exciting, delivered to you by a roster of international and regional experts.

It will also be a time to rekindle old bonds and make new friends as we hold the 1st ever reunion of the ASEAN Orthopaedic Association Junior and Senior Travelling Fellows!

For our colleagues interested in shoulder and upper extremity orthopaedics, the Academic Congress of the Asian Shoulder Association (8th ACASA) will precede the ASEAN conference from November 25-26, 2014 and it will be possible to book the 5 days together!

Come and enjoy too, the famous sunshine of Cebu and the warmth and hospitality of your Filipino hosts. It is our pride and our pleasure to welcome you all to this landmark convention!

Most sincerely,
EDWARD HM WANG, MD MSc FPOA
President & Overall Conference Chair
