Message from President IOA 2021

It is with pleasure and pride that I write this message for the website designed for the Annual Conference of Delhi Orthopaedic Association being held at Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi from 26th to 28th November 2021. I am aware of the standard of DOACON as I have attended few earlier ones and also some of the Mid Term meets organised by DOA in the past. I am sure under the leadership of Organising Chairman Dr R K Kanojia and Organising Secretary Dr. Vivek Jangira and dynamic President of DOA Dr Lalit Maini, Secretary Dr. Hitesh Lal and the organising team will host yet another memorable conference. The theme of the conference “Evolving Knowledge base in education for developing passion in learning” is also very catchy and definitely the delegates attending will enjoy learning newer things happening in Orthopaedic World around the globe from these scientific deliberations.

The pandemic has been the spoilsport but there is always a silver lining to every bad patch. It has taught us many new things and made us tech-savvy and also made us more flexible. As front-line workers, almost all of us are vaccinated so there should not be any problem for traveling to Delhi and attending this meet physically. Now the time has come to meet each other physically, एक दूसरे से रूबरू होने का! and to enjoy the face to face physical conference.

The scientific committee lead by Dr. Alok Sud has done a wonderful job in getting faculty from across India of National and International repute as well as seven international speakers of world repute, who are masters in their own sub speciality field. I would like to congratulate the team for their untiring efforts to give the best academic program. I am very happy in the balance kept in selecting sub speciality topics too without over dose of any of the branch.

I extend my warm greetings to all the delegates attending this conference. I am sure all of you will be benefitted after attending the conference and will be carrying back home sweet memories of having attended a great scientific feast.

I wish the DOACON 2021 all the very best!

Dr. B. Shivashankar
