Message from the President, Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association«.

Prof. H.K.T.Raza It is really heartening to know that the Second National Conference on Social Orthopaedics is being organized at Shillong under your able leaderships of Orthopaedic Society Shillong (OSS) and NIOH (Kolkata) at NEIGRIHMS .Holding it along with the Annual Conference of NEROSA will attract more delegates and will also give me an opportunity of meeting my very close friends from the North East I am personally very happy that the idea we had started in Jabalpur has been taken up by colleagues in Kolkata and Shillong. I am grateful to them for the encouragement and boost for this aspect of Orthopaedics. We, as Orthopaedic Surgeons get so engrossed and involved with service to humanity within the walls of our clinics and hospitals that we do not realize that there is a lot to be done in the way of service to our brethren outside. Social Orthopaedics is the right platform for all likeminded people to work together to minimize affects of Road Traffic Accidents, Natural and Man Made disasters, public awareness programmes for various Orthopaedic affections, epidemiology of Trauma and Orthopaedic diseases, Financial, Social and Psychological aspects of our patients, etc. A lot of research is also required in these fields in India. Through this message I would like to start an idea of creation of a National organization so that we can organize ourselves in a better way. This message is also an appeal to all colleagues and like-minded friends to join the National Organization we are about to launch so that we can meet regularly and be able to exchange our experiences and ideas.
