Australian surgeon and founder of Osseointegration International, Professor Munjed Al Muderis, has been invited to speak at the 52nd Malaysian Orthopaedic Association (MOA) Annual Scientific Meeting in Penang between June 15th-17th 2023.
The theme of this year’s meeting, which will be held at the SPICE Convention Centre in Bayan Lepas, is “enhancing recovery in orthopaedic surgery” which aims to go beyond surgical and medicinal treatments to address issues such as unethical practices and poor decision-making.
Professor Al Muderis, whose pioneering work in prosthetic design, particularly in the area of osseointegration devices for amputees and limb lengthening has earned him international recognition, will be speaking on a number of topics. On the 15th of June during the ‘Next Generation Orthopaedics’ session, he will discuss:
- Effectiveness of Osseointegration in Enhancing Amputation Rehab and
- 3D Modelling in Orthopaedics
On the 17th June at the Humanitarian session, Professor Al Muderis will talk on:
- Post Op Rehab for Amputations – My Humanitarian Efforts.
Professor Al Muderis has recently returned from Ukraine where he lead a team of orthopaedic and trauma surgeons helping combatants and civilians injured by the Russian invasion.
Commenting on being invited to speak, Munjed Al Muderis said: “It’s an honour to address colleagues at the MOA scientific meeting. Recovery from orthopaedic surgery is ever-evolving and it’s important to continually find ways to enhance the process. This will provide an opportunity not just to share and hear what is working but to discuss in a less formal setting what may or may not be coming in the future.”
The MOA was formed in 1967 and aims to promote the advancement of science, arts and practice of orthopaedic surgery and allied science. For more information about the 52nd Malaysian Orthopaedic Association Annual Scientific Meeting 2023, visit the official website at moaasm.com
