Dear Fellows and members,
First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Siu Kwai Ming, HKOA president, for inviting me to be one of the council members to serve you all. Although I have worked as organizing committee in HKOA annual congress for a few times and have been working closely with Adult Joint Reconstruction Chapter, it’s my first time to join in the HKOA council. Throughout the past few months, we have had four council meetings, from which I started to know and learn more about the association.
As the current President of Adult Joint Reconstruction Chapter, I was so honored to be invited to join the 49th Malaysian Orthopaedic Association Annual Scientific Meeting in Kuala Lumpur in early May this year. I was so glad to witness the excellent presentation by Dr. Raymond Wan, HKOA ambassador, in the plenary session about “Cost-effectiveness of Same-stage Bilateral Total Knee Replacement over Two Stage”.
The current Organizing Committee of Hong Kong Orthopaedic Association Annual Congress is now busy with all the preparation works. Same as all of you, I am also very eager to know any surprise in the coming congress. Let me tell you a bit on the Adult Joint Replacement session. We have invited two distinguished speakers. One is an expert of mobile-bearing partial knee replacement from Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, Professor Andrew Price. Another is an expert of robotic joint replacement from Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. David Mayman. These are two recent important and hot topics in the field. No matter whether you are sub-specializing in joint replacement, it will be a definitive interesting show. Please come to the session to hear what’s new.
Dr. Fan Chi Ho Jason
