Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the Hong Kong 2015 - the Combined Congress of the 12th Hong Kong International Orthopaedic Forum (HKIOF) and the 10th Combined Congress of the Asia Pacific Spine Society (APSS) and the Asia Pacific Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (APPOS) 2015, jointly organised by the University of Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association (APOA ).

The Congress will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) on 5 – 7 June 2015. This is the first time that the Hong Kong International Orthopaedic Forum will combine with the biannual combined Congress of APSS and APPOS (formerly known as APOA spine and paediatric orthopaedic chapters). We will present you an exciting programme and unforgettable meeting in Hong Kong. The aim of the Hong Kong International Orthopaedic Forum is to help arouse the interest and awareness of health care professionals of all disciplines to the latest developments in the field of orthopaedic surgery. This year, we will expand our scope by co-organising the combined meeting with the largest regional orthopaedic association APOA .

The Asia Pacific region has very diversified cultures and economies. Each country faces very unique challenges in managing even very common orthopaedic diseases. We hope this meeting can bring together experts in the region to share their knowledge in the management of many challenging orthopaedic diseases in Asia Pacific.

We look forward to seeing you at the combined Congress in Hong Kong.
