Appreciation Note from the President of the Malaysia Spine Society

Dear All,

On behalf of the Malaysia Spine Society (MSS), I would like to thank all of you for participating in and supporting the 7th International MSS Scientific Congress which was held from 2 – 4 August 2019 at the WEIL Hotel, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.

The primary goal of this congress was to share invaluable scientific knowledge and experiences on the latest development and research in the field of spinal surgery. This meeting has also provided a good platform for exchanging ideas and information. We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of international and local speakers and expert panels has provided an in-depth insight into spine surgery, as well as sharing practical tricks and tips throughout the pre-congress workshop, plenary, symposia and meet-the-expert forums. Thus, we would like to take this opportunity to express our utmost gratitude to the international and local faculty speakers and panelists for taking part in this scientific congress. Without them, the congress would not have been as interesting and successful.

Next, we would like to thank all the moderators who have played a leading role in chairing the sessions throughout the congress and kept every session at check. Their presence ensured the sessions were run smoothly and helped in engaging various interesting discussions throughout the congress.

Most importantly, we would like to express our utmost gratitude to the Organising Chairman, Dato' Dr. K. S. Sivananthan, for leading the overall planning of the congress, the Scientific Chairman, Dr. Zulkefli Atan, and the Scientific Co-Chairman, Dr. Zairul Anuar Kamarul Bahrin, for planning and drawing up an excellent scientific programme for the congress. Besides that, the Society would like to thank the Secretariat team for their support in coordinating the congress and ensuring that it ran successfully.

Additionally, we would like to thank the abstract reviewers of the free papers for their efforts and time in reviewing the papers and providing us the shortlisted participants who showed a higher quality of work in their research. Similarly, this appreciation is also extended to the panel of international judges of the congress for their efforts and expertise in judging and scoring the MSS Presidential Best Research Award and Best Poster Award.

Moving on, this congress would not be a success without the support from our industry partners. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the industry sponsors for supporting our congress. We hope to continue working along with all the industry partners in future congresses.

Last but not least, your presence as delegates has made this event a great success. We wish you all the best and hope that you will continue to be actively involved in MSS activities.

Stay tuned for the 8th International MSS Scientific Congress which is scheduled to be held from 7 – 9 August 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

Prof Dr Kwan Mun Keong
President
