  • Dear Orthopods and Arthroplasty Surgeons

     It gives me immense pleasure in my capacity as the President of Arthroplasty Society In Asia to invite you all to participate in the 5th Annual meeting of ASIA on 15th and 17th November 2017 in Tokyo, Japan.

    ASIA as a society has now matured from a small infant to an adolescent. We have seen the vision of our founding chairman Dr. Yan Wang blossoming over the years. The meeting has been travelling from China to Korea to India and now back to Japan via Guangzhou in China.

    We have had wonderful sessions and interactions over the years including live demonstration of surgeries. You can be assured of a wonderful academic spread under the stewardship of Prof. Hirokazu Ida. He and his team are working tirelessly to make this meeting a memorable event in the history of ASIA.

    Finally, it is my appeal and humble request to all our members to spread the gospel of ASIA to all theirs colleagues and friends and motivate and encourage them to become members of ASIA.

    Look forward to seeing you in Tokyo. 

    With warm wishes,
