Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We are delighted to invite you to participate and share in the 22nd Pacific and Asian Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (PASMISS) conference. This year our conference will be held in Singapore at the Grand Hyatt from the 28th-31st July 2022.
We sincerely hope that this would be our first fully in-person conference since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. However, to be responsible, we may have to adopt a hybrid format depending on the prevailing COVID-19 situation. The fact that many of you will be travelling considerable distances and taking time off your busy schedule, serves to remind us all; how important our thought-sharing at this conference would be.
PASMISS is committed to actively advancing the “Science and Art of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery” and fostering working relationships in the region and beyond. This year, we are holding our conference in conjunction with the Singapore Spine Society (SSS), who will be our co-hosts, facilitating the latter part of the meeting from the afternoon of 30th July onwards.
The organizing committee has started working on an exceptional program, covering the challenges of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, involving degenerative, trauma and tumour-related cases. The scientific program will be packed with the latest information through various symposia, debates and lectures. The pre- and post-conference workshops as well as the list of speakers are currently being organized. Rest assured, they will definitely make your involvement in the conference worthwhile.
We encourage participants to attend the Singapore Spine Society’s segment of the conference as it would also be interesting and informative. As always, we invite participants to extend their stay for a while, to enjoy the beautiful and ever-vibrant city of Singapore.
Finally, we hope that you get to make new friends, meet some old friends, and have a wonderful time in Singapore!
