Welcome Message from the President of APFSSH

The 11th congress of the Asian Pacific Federation Societies for Surgery of the Hand (APFSSH) in conjunction with the 7th congress of the Asian Pacific federation of Societies for Hand Therapy (APFSHT) will be held on November 7th -10th, 2017 at the Radisson Blu hotel, Cebu city, Philippines.

This meeting is one of the most important and the highest academic hand conferences in the Asian Pacific regions. The aims of this conference are to offer great opportunities for hand surgeons, hand therapists, as well as researchers and other physicians who are interested in the field of hand surgery; to present their ideas, clinical results, techniques, experiences and knowledge.

In the past 10 years, APFSSH meetings had been successfully hosted by respectful hand surgeons in Hong Kong (2008), Taiwan (Kaohsiung, 2009), Indonesia (Bali, 2012), and Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, 2014). Based on our previous wonderful experiences, I am quite sure that we will have a successful APFSSH meeting in Cebu city this November.

The highlights of the APFSSH conference this year including many interesting topics of hand surgery, many famous international guest speakers and faculties are in charge of special lectures and symposiums, and Professor Akio Minami’s speech in the Tajima lecture. The organizing committee and the chairman have put a lot of efforts in the scientific program, the venue arrangement, the speakers’ invitation, as well as the social activities. Cebu city is one of the best places for visitors in Philippines, which is full of sunshine, hospitality, smile and beautiful ocean.

I sincerely invite all our friends from the Asian Pacific countries to join us in this APFSSH congress this November in Cebu city, Philippines. This will be a congress with lots of joy, friendships, and knowledge for our hand surgeons and hand therapists.

With kindest regards

Yuan-Kun Tu, MD, PhD, FICS
President, the Asian Pacific Federation Societies for Surgery of the Hand
