About APOA

The Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association (APOA) is an organisation of orthopaedic surgeons mainly from the Asia-Pacific region. It was founded as the Western Pacific Orthopaedic Association in 1962 by seven orthopaedic surgeons, meeting in Manila,

Members come from some forty countries from around the world, but mainly from the seventeen Member Chapters. These are Australia, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam Turkey and Sri Lanka. The name was changed to the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association on the 9th of April 2000, at a Special Council Meeting on the Gold Coast.

India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China were also admitted as Member Chapters. At the 2004 Triennial Congress Turkey and Sri Lanka were received as new Chapters.

President's Message

President Prof. Po-Quang Chen

My dear friends,

During the 15th Triennial Congress of APOA, I was offically installed as the President of APOA 2007-2010. You can imagine that the load will be quite heavy. As the leaders in the Orthopedic fields, may I request you to help me to set up a good basis for strengthening our power for APOA. In 2009, The Combined meeting of Trauma and Infection will also be held in Taiwan.

Within your ability, I urge all of you can encourage our orthopedic surgeons to apply for membership in the APOA and the related subspecialty. The procedures of application will soon released thru APOA Secretariat.

If you have any suggestions, please also let me know.


Yours truly,

Po-Quang Chen, MD.
President, APOA
