Aree Tanavalee, MD

President of the RCOST (2018-2020) Professor

Department of Orthopaedics, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University

It is my great pleasure to warmly invite you to join and celebrate the 41st Annual Meeting of the Royal College of Orthopaedic Surgeons of Thailand (RCOST) which will be held from October 20 to October 22, 2019 at the Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall (PEACH), Pattaya, Thailand.

The PEACH, the meeting venue, is located along the slope of the cliff between Jomtien Beach and Pattaya City which can be easily reached at approximately 75 minutes by car from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport. It is surrounded with four 5 star hotels in the vicinity, which takes a few minutes walking distance to sandy beaches and award-winning restaurants.

In this annual meeting, there is a very special occasion. It will be the first time of the RCOST annual meeting history that several key members of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA), as well as several well known Japanese orthopaedic speakers, will participate and share their orthopaedic knowledges together with those of Thai orthopaedic surgeons in all aspects of orthopaedics for the whole meeting program. The goals of this annual meeting are to improve knowledge in orthopaedic field which includes all subspecialties, to facilitate the translation of basic orthopaedic studies into the clinical level, and to promote international orthopaedic cooperation, especially between Japan and Thailand.

Besides the academic activities, there are also several social events at premeeting, and during the meeting, which are arranged to emphasize and to enhance the friendship between members of JOA and RCOST. This new meeting highlight will turn the annual meeting format of the RCOST into a new era, which we will have guest nations visit our annual meeting every year. Therefore, we are very proud to title this special meeting as “JOA Visiting RCOST 2019”

Last but not least, besides Japanese speakers and participants, there are several speakers from North America, Europe, North Asia and South East Asia who are also invited to join the 41st Annual Meeting of the RCOST. Therefore, it is no question that this meeting is recognized as an international meeting. I do believe that this meeting is definitely one of the international meetings which you should plan to attend!

Again, I am looking forward to welcoming you all to the “JOA Visiting RCOST 2019” in Pattaya.

The JOA visiting RCOST meeting 2019

The upcoming 2019 annual meeting of the Royal College of Orthopaedic Surgeons of Thailand (RCOST) will take place from 20-22 October 2019. The meeting in Pattaya, Thailand will be the scientific highlight of the year for all orthopaedists and experts in Asia and Thailand.

The highlight this year is the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) Visiting RCOST. You could expect a lot of Japanese orthopaedists will come and share their expertise in this meeting.

It will not only provide participants with an outstanding scientific program and the latest in research, treatment methods, and healthcare, it will also allow for numerous opportunities to meet renowned specialists from ASEAN countries, Japan, Asia, Europe and north America.

The meeting also offers many opportunities for self directed learning, with choices including the scientific exhibits and posters in both traditional and electronic formats as well as the surgical technique video. It will also provide a very attractive program which will allow all meeting participants to enjoy striking presentations, excellent keynote lectures and research papers, allowing you to take up the latest information and techniques and to bring them back home.

I will take great pleasure in welcoming orthopaedic surgeons, orthopaedic residents, nurses, to the JOA Visiting RCOST meeting, and hope that their stay in Pattaya will be informative, educational and enjoyable.

I’m looking forward to welcoming you to Pattaya, Thailand.
