Dear Friends,


    It is with pride and honour we feel privileged to host the 48th annual conference of the Indian Orthopaedic Association at Chennai, the cultural capital of India.  We envisage a spectacular event for the orthopaedic fraternity in a land where the soil emanates hospitality and the masters breathe wisdom.  Art and Technology have known no bounds here, rendering a perfect medium for medical development.  We invite you for a camp at Chennai with your spouse and children to stroll down the golden sands of the Marina and the terra incognita of Orthopaedics taking home the precious pebbles you would want.  We welcome generous participation from the younger generation as well, to know the ropes and more importantly, the knots of orthopaedics.

    Lectures to motivate and muse, workshops for the dexterous to be, memorable evenings to dance and dine and a lot more are in store. Needless to say, fun and frolic are the spicy components of our system. Check in Chennai, the most happening and peaceful metropolitan and check out what more can life give you.  Enjoy the southerly breeze from December 18th to 21st 2003, a time to rejuvenate your techno-savvy in an absolutely hassle-free mind frame. 

Conscientious though, we invoke the Almighty to consecrate this event.
