Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery

Published three issues a year starting 2005, the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery is the official publication of the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association. Since 1962, the Journal has been an international forum for scientific research. It allows orthopaedic surgeons and scientists of the Asia Pacific Region to continuously update themselves with the latest discoveries and advances of orthopaedic surgery.

In August 2002, the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine Press took over the Hong Kong University Press as the publisher of the Journal. HKAM Press is also responsible for the design and maintenance of this Journal website
