Welcome Message from the Co-Chairs

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to join the Asia Pacific Spine Society (APSS) 7th Annual Meeting 2024, which will be held in Hong Kong from 13 to 16 June 2024.  The Meeting is co-organized by the Asia Pacific Spine Society and the Department of Orthopaedics & Traumatology, School of Clinical Medicine, LKS Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong.

APSS (the Spine Section of the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association [APOA]) is a regional organization of the spine surgeons mainly from the Asia Pacific region. This society started with the Western Pacific Orthopaedic Association - Spine Section in 1979. Today, APOA has 24 member chapters and more than 59,000 members from over 40 countries.

The APSS organized its Annual Meeting in the Asia Pacific region to promote excellence and advancement in the field of spine surgery for clinicians and researchers. We are delighted that the 7th Annual Meeting will be held in Hong Kong in 2024. Hong Kong hosted the last APSS event nine years ago in 2015. We are honoured to have the opportunity to host the APSS event again.

The Congress will provide a platform for professional education, sharing of cutting-edge science, demonstration of advanced and novel techniques, and interaction among international experts in the field of spine surgery. As a well-attended Congress, you will not only enjoy the chance to meet colleagues from the Asia-Pacific region, but also international co-workers.  Last but not the least, the many attractions such as culture, sights and food that Hong Kong has to offer.

We cordially invite you to come to Hong Kong to join our Congress to learn, to share, to meet with old friends and to make new ones.  The Organizing Committee is committed in making the APSS 7th Annual Meeting 2024 a memorable and successful one.

We look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong!

Welcome Message from the President of APSS

On behalf of the Asia Pacific Spine Society (APSS), I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to all of you as we anticipate the Society’s 7th Annual Meeting in Hong Kong!

This occasion marks a significant moment for our community, where we will come together to celebrate the progress we have made and chart the course for the future of spine care in the Asia Pacific region. The past year has been a testament to the spine community’s unwavering commitment to excellence in improving the quality of spine care across the region.

While we take pride in these achievements, we are also acutely aware of the challenges that lie ahead. It is, therefore, crucial that we continue to work together, building upon shared expertise and fostering collaboration across borders. This meeting serves as a vital platform for us to connect, share knowledge, and ignite the spark of innovation that will propel us forward.

The Organising Committee has meticulously curated a diverse scientific programme, featuring presentations and workshops from leading experts across the Asia Pacific region. We hope that this will encourage stimulating research discussions and cultivate possible networking ties, leading to cutting-edge innovations that will shape the future of spine care.

It is in this spirit of collaboration that we look forward to welcoming industry partners in the region who share our vision in advancing spine treatment. Together, we can leverage on our combined expertise and resources to accelerate progress and improve the lives of many patients. We would like to offer you the opportunity to showcase the advancement in research and technology that your organisation has made in alignment with the Society’s vision. Please contact the Congress Secretariat to explore available exhibition opportunities.

Beyond the scientific programme, we would like to invite you to experience the vibrant city of Hong Kong. From its captivating skyline and bustling streets to its rich history and cultural offerings, Hong Kong promises to be an unforgettable backdrop for this meeting.

Let's leave Hong Kong not only with improved knowledge and skills but also with a renewed sense of purpose and shared commitment to constructing a better future for spine care in this region.
