Dr S Rajasekaran, chairman, department of orthopaedics, trauma and spine surgery, Ganga Hospital, Coimbatore, has taken charge as president of the International Society for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery (SICOT).
New Delhi: Dr Sanjiv Kumar Singh Marya, vice chairman, Max Healthcare India, has taken office as president of the Indian Orthopaedic Association. IOA is one of the largest professional organizations in the country with more than 9,000 active members.
We have requested our Health Minister to declare 4th August as the ‘Bone and Joint Day’ (the constitution of the IOA Charter was signed on August 4). On this day, every single life member of the IOA has promised to operate one surgery free of charge. That would mean nearly 10,000 free surgeries across the length and breadth of the country and would be a record of sorts as such a programme has never been conducted anywhere in the world.
