Appreciation Note from the President of the Malaysia Spine Society

Dear All,

On behalf of the Malaysia Spine Society (MSS), I would like to thank you all of you for supporting and participating in the 6th International MSS Scientific Congress on August 3 – 5, 2018 at Hilton Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We hope that you found the congress informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this congress was to enhance your interactions with experts in the country and from the region to share and improve knowledge and experience on the latest international research and advances in the field of spine surgery.

We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers and expert panels provided in-depth insight, as well as the practical spine surgery methods and findings shared through the pre-congress and post-congress workshops, plenary, symposia, expert forums, and operative video sessions brought a significant impact in the local spine surgery scene. Thus, we would like to express our utmost gratitude to the faculty speakers and panellists for sharing the knowledge of the latest spine care, management, research and innovation at the congress. Without them, the congress would not have been as interesting and successful as it has been.

Next, we would like to thank to all the moderators that played a leading role in chairing the sessions throughout the congress and keeping every session at check. Their presence ensured the sessions were run smoothly and helped in engaging various interesting discussions throughout the congress. We would like to express our appreciation to the Organising Committee as well for guiding and assisting throughout the development of the congress and keeping the scientific congress on track in meeting the objectives.

Moving on, we would like to express our utmost gratitude to the Organising Chairman, Dato' Dr Fazir Mohamad, for leading through the overall planning of the congress as well as to the Scientific Chairman, Assoc Prof Chris Chan Yin Wei, for planning and drawing up an excellent scientific programme of the congress. Besides that, the Society would like to thank the Secretariat team for their support in coordinating the congress and ensuring that it ran successfully.

We would also like to thank the abstract reviewers of the free papers for their efforts and time in reviewing the papers and providing us the shortlisted participants who showed a higher quality of work in their research. Also, this appreciation would also go to the panel of international judges of the congress for their efforts and expertise shown in judging and scoring the Best Research Award and Best Poster Award to help us to finalise the winners of the awards.

Moving on, this congress would not be a success without the supports from our industry partners. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the industry sponsors for supporting our congress and making the event more proactive and interesting with their innovations and recommendations to the spine care industry. We hope to work along with all the industry partners again in the future congresses.

Finally, your presence as delegates made this event a remarkable success, and your enthusiasm and positive spirit formed our bonding time together both productive and fun. We wish you all the best and hope that you continue to be engaged with the activities of MSS.

Stay tuned for the 7th International MSS Scientific Congress which is scheduled to be held from August 2 – 4, 2019 at Weil Hotel, Ipoh, Malaysia!
