Welcome Message From the President of APOA

First of all, I would like to thank Dr. Charanjeet Singh -Chairman of Sports Injury Section APOA & Organizing Chairman APOA Sports Meeting 2019-, Prof. Dr. Tunku Kamarul Zaman -Chairman of Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Research Society, Local Scientific Committee APOA Orthopaedic Research Meeting 2019-, Dato' Dr Badrul Akmal Hisham Md Yusoff -Scientific Chairman APOA Sports Meeting 2019-, and all Organizing & International Committee Members, for the realization of the APOA Sports Meeting incorporating Orthopaedic Research 2019, between the 4th and 6th April 2019, including the pre-conference day the 3rd April 2019, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It is my great pleasure to announce this scientifically important, and unique meeting combining the Sports Injuries, and the Orthopaedic Researches, especially focused on knee, and shoulder problems, including cartilage lesions. The meeting will be enriched with live cadaveric demonstrations, live surgeries, workshops, and Meet the Expert sessions by the distinguished speakers from all over the world. Moreover, this meeting has two important aspects to encourage the young orthopaedic surgeons, and young orthopaedic researchers; the opportunity to present their research, and papers in the free paper sessions, and the offer of 100 education grants. This is vitally important for the future of APOA, in a great synchrony with the philosophy of the APOA - Young Surgeon's Forum (YSF), which has been founded in my term, in 2018.

Besides the scientific aspects, this meeting will surely be important in terms of experiencing the truly Asian culture, lifestyle, entertainment, and wonderful gastronomy. These aspects will bring us closer, to improve the efforts for the peace in the world.

Finally, I strongly believe that this initial meeting will be highly valuable not only for the orthopaedic surgeons, and researchers in the Asia Pacific region, but also for our colleagues from all over the World, including "Young Surgeons". In this context, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association (APOA), I would like to kindly invite all of you to join the APOA Sports Meeting incorporating Orthopaedic Research 2019, in the fascinating city of Kuala Lumpur!

Best wishes,


Prof. Mahmut Nedim DORAL, MD
