Welcome Message
Organising Chairman & President, Malaysia Spine Society

Dear Colleagues,

It is my greatest pleasure to welcome the Scoliosis Research Society to Malaysia. It is also a very great honour for the Malaysia Spine Society as we have the opportunity to meet the international experts of spine deformity surgery in Malaysia. This is an important step in the development of spine surgery for our society specifically, and for Malaysian orthopaedic surgery in general.

Our inaugural meeting has been themed “Challenges and Controversies in Spine Surgery”. We feel this is very timely, as knowledge and techniques in spine surgery have expanded, surgeons require the platform to evaluate these developments in meetings such as these. To this end, we invite speakers and experts from all corners of the world to come and share with us, present for us and teach us what is new, not forgetting that we have to also evaluate the outcomes of established practice.

Once again, on behalf the Malaysia Spine Society, I welcome each and everyone of you to Malaysia for a stimulating scientific programme, and an equally exciting social programme.
