Dear Colleagues and Friends
I would like to bid you a warm welcome to our Combined Meetings of the 40th Singapore Orthopaedic Association Annual Scientific Meeting, the 4th Asia-Pacific Society for Foot and Ankle Surgery Biennial Scientific Meeting and the 1st Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society of Singapore Scientific Meeting. It is a landmark event in that the Foot and Ankle Surgeons, in Singapore, are the first subspecialty to establish a society under the umbrella of the Singapore Orthopaedic Association.
The Organising Committee had started work early to get an exceptional program with world-renowned speakers in Foot and Ankle Surgery to grace this meeting. The scientific program is packed with the latest information in the various symposia, with debates, lectures and discussions. Pre-Meeting cadaveric workshops have been organised – Arthroscopic Surgery and Open Forefoot and Hind-foot Surgery, for those who are keen to learn new surgical techniques or add on to their surgical skills. Looking at the list of invited speakers and the program as a whole, one can get a sense that all important and controversial topics on Foot and Ankle Surgery are discussed in this one meeting.
Do extend your stay for a while to take in the sites of our beautiful island city. There are the Gardens by the Bay, the Night Safari and the Singapore Flyer to name a few.
Finally, I hope you would have learnt knew knowledge, met old friends and made new ones and also had a wonderful time visiting Singapore.
