Welcome Message from The Organising Chairman of the 10th MAS ASM 2023
10 years ago, the Malaysian Arthroscopy Society was formed by a group of visionaries and pioneers of arthroscopic surgery in Malaysia. This year we will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary. That means we have survived infancy and toddlerhood, which used to have a high mortality rate. In fact, we have more than survived. We have grown from strength to strength. However, none of this is possible without the support of our members and industry partners.
I am humbled to have been appointed the Organising Chairman of this year’s landmark 10th Annual Scientific Meeting with the theme “Arthroscopy and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine: The Next Decade”. Having gone through 10 years of existence, and coming out of a global pandemic, it is time to reflect on our achievements in those years and to look ahead to the next 10 years.
Arthroscopic surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine have advanced by leaps and bounds since I first ventured into this field back in 1995. Then, we had few teachers, equipment, and expertise. However, we had the passion to learn, and lots of patients to learn on. With time, and not a few stumbles every now and then, arthroscopic and sports surgery has become a recognised sub-specialty within orthopaedics in Malaysia.
The scientific committee has put together a comprehensive program of plenary lectures, symposia, Instructional Course Lectures, free papers, and poster sessions. There will also be engagement sessions with KKM regarding training and practice matters. As usual there will be prizes for best paper and poster presentations.
Please mark your calendars and see you all in October 2023.
Col Dr Kok Choong Seng (Rtd)
