Asia Pacific Spine Arthroplasty Society

A small group with twenty orthopaedic arthroplasty surgeons from the Asia-Pacific region had met in Gold Coast of Queensland, in Australia, in 1997 to discuss the need for scientific body  and to represent the academic and professional needs of the region. The Asia Pacific Arthroplasty Society came out of that meeting with Wui K Chung the founding chairman. Ray Randle was elected as the 1st President of the society and Chit Ranawat honored the society by accepting to be the Patron of the society. The aims of the society are to: foster social and scientific exchange, provide a platform for Asian surgeons to present their surgical experience, encourage exchange scholarship. The 1st Annual Scientific Meeting was held in New Delhi in 1998. Total of 600 delegates attended that meeting. Since  there were 13 successful Annual Meetings held in Shanghai, Beijing, Xian, New Delhi, Mumbai, Seoul, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. Our past Presidents were Ray Randle, Ashok Rajgopal, Jim Sullivan, Yoo Myung-chui, Wang Yan and most recently Arun Mullaji. Our current President is Rami Sorial and Vice President Zhang Hong. The Delta Foundation being a separate entity, was created as an additional educational arm of the society. Its educational format includes short 2-3 day seminars, to provide practical instruction on surgical technique and the science of arthroplasty surgery. These seminars have been conducted in numerous cities across Asia, pivoted on live surgical demonstrations with moderators and open forum case discussions. Joint replacement surgery has undergone a tremendous evolution in Asia-Pacific region in the last decade. With a newer technologies patient outcomes have been improved and patients are able to return to their work early. The collaboration between the industry and the arthroplasty surgeons has helped in innovations in joint replacement for the benefit of the patients and to improve their quality of life. APAS have been an integral part of this process over the years.
