Message from Dr SS Amarnath.
It gives me immense pleasure in inviting one and all for the first International Conference of the Geriatric Orthopedic Society of India at Bangalore.
I am sure that most of the practicing Fellow Orthopedic surgeons across the country & globe are facing the dilemma of treating the geriatric orthopedic patient on
a daily basis.
By 2025 India will have more than 1.3 billion populations out of which nearly 50 % will be senior citizens. There is lot of work for all of us and together
we can make a positive difference to our country and mankind at large. Friends most of the orthopedic surgeons in India will also come under that umbrella in the
near future, hence it is the right time that we position ourselves to handle these issues. We have eminent faculty from abroad,
India and from all walks of life to enrich our knowledge on these issues. I urge each one of you to enroll as members and encourage your
colleagues to enroll in this society to make it a bigger, stronger society.
Dr SS Amarnath
