From the President's Desk
Dear Honorable Members,
Greetings from TNOA..
It is my pleasure and opportunity to communicate with our fellow members through this brochure. I would like to thank all of you who helped directly or indirectly to achieve this position bestowed upon me. I humbly accept the responsibility and will meet everyone’s expectations. Readmore
As promised and said during my acceptance speech “FORESIGHT FOR BETTER TOMORROW – EMPOWER THE NEEDY” will be the theme for TNOA 2016-2017. I always felt surgeons from tier II cities should be well equipped, trained and empowered about specially surgeries. In this regard in my capacity we have already sent 25 Members for Arthroplasty Fellowships and will continue to do so.
Updating ourselves with new knowledge & skill is the key to success. So TNOA in its capacity would facilitate CMEs in many districts through Orthopaedic clubs/Academics across the state. We need active participation from all our members in a united front, so that TNOA reaches greater heights.
Bone and joint day celebration was conducted on August 3-5, 2016, which is landmark event for this academic year since the theme was “One Member - One Free Surgery”. In total at the last count we have performed approximately 250 and above free surgeries by our TNOA Members-. A BIG THANK YOU to all the members for this active participation.
As a model Association I would like to form Academic panel by TNOA nominated by our Office Bearers & Members, which will help the Association in the long run for sending, for formulating the Faculty list by our TNOA with priority to local Faculty and Organizers. To start with we can organize a TNOA Crash course as adjunct and follow on.
Congratulations with appreciations to the Organizing Team of TNOACON 2017, Organizing Chairman Dr. S.G. Thirumalaisamy & Organizing Secretary Dr. Vetrivel Chezhian and the Team in planning & organizing a wonderful and excellent conference marking the Golden Jubilee Year Conference. In this TNOACON we shall categorize the speciality papers in different sessions which will receive awards.
Suggestions & criticisms are always welcome, be it from elders or a young surgeon, as “rain & shine will help the plant to become a mighty tree”.
Always at your service
Tamilnadu Orthopaedic Association

It is a platform to discuss art and science of Orthopaedics. We need to find out credible evidence based solutions to clinical problems unique to our country. Every experience at treating patients by individuals will add to existing knowledge. I humbly request all the senior and junior collegues to participate in discussion to improve the quality of research deliberations.
I express my sincere wishes to the organizing committee of “Golden Jubilee” 50th Annual Conference of Tamil Nadu Orthopaedic Association in Coimbatore.
