Dear esteemed colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the organizing committee, we are honored and delighted to welcome all of you to the 6th Annual Meeting of Arthroplasty Society in Asia (ASIA2018) from November 8h to 10th in Shanghai, China.
ASIA was founded in 2013 to make a neutral Arthroplasty platform within Asia. Mission of ASIA is to reinforce Asian arthroplasty surgeon network and collaboration, to accomplish the ultimate goal of promoting the development and exchange of Joint surgery techniques and clinical research, as well as to enhance patient clinical outcomes. We commit to build up a leading Joint academic association which is able to actualize arthroplasty development and better patient service within Asia Pacific.
The first meeting was held in Beijing, the second in Seoul, the third in Agra, the fourth in Guangzhou, and the fifth in Tokyo. Those five meetings were very successful. The sixth ASIA meeting will be held in Shanghai under the slogan of “ASIA for Asia”. The Scientific program includes up to date knowledge, panel discussions and deliberations by masters. The most important aspects of the regional orthopaedic issues in hip and knee arthroplasty will be open to discuss. Lots of distinguished invited speakers as well as organizations worldwide will join in this meeting.
The organizing committee has been doing our best to make the meeting enjoyable and memorable.
Looking forward to meeting you in Shanghai!
Haishan Wu , M.D.
Chairman of ASIA2018
