The 60th Anniversary Congress of the Korean Orthopaedic Association

Welcome Message
It is my great pleasure and honor to welcome all of you from around the world to the 60th Anniversary Congress of the Korean Orthopaedic Association to be held in Incheon, Republic of Korea from October 19 to 22, 2016.

Since established in 1956, the Korean Orthopaedic Association has grown to be one of the largest medical associations in Republic of Korea. Our association has approximately 7,000 regular members and has continued to expand its presence throughout the world. Korea’s quality medical service in the field of orthopedic surgery has gained international recognition, and our numerous valuable works have been published in SCI journals.

The 60th Anniversary Congress of the Korean Orthopaedic Association aims to promote scientific development in this challenging field and strengthen our friendship. With your valuable contributions, this scientific program will continue to provide an opportunity for all participants to exchange the latest information and ideas, and encourage debate on the many orthopaedic issues.

We especially remember the cordial welcome from the members of Japanese Orhopaedic Association and expect at this meeting that the Korean Orthopaedic Association and the Japanese Orthopaedic Association have a chance to discuss how we might work together to improve both of our institutions and foster the expansion and development of the field of orthopaedics.

It will be honor for us to have you at the 60th Anniversary Congress of the Korean Orthopaedic Association.
Yours sincerely,

Sung-Jae Kim, MD. Ph.D.
President, The Korean Orthopaedic Association
