History of the Singapore Orthopaedic Association



Since emerging from the shadows of General Surgery, the specialty of Orthopaedic Surgery in Singapore has grown from strength to strength. The year 2002 commemorates 50 years of orthopaedic specialty practice in Singapore. It also celebrates the 34th birthday of the Singapore Orthopaedic Association and coincides with the 25th Annual Scientific Meeting. The Singapore Orthopaedic Association, from its humble beginnings, has grown into a credible organisation that aims to fulfill the academic aspirations of its members as well as serve as a bridge to other related organisations abroad.
