  • Respected Members,


    I am indeed very happy to invite all of you for the 51st Annual Conference of Tamil Nadu Orthopaedic Association at Nagercoil from 9th, 10th & 11th February, 2018.

    It is a platform to discuss art and science of orthopaedics. We are expected to provide minimum standard of care in orthopaedics to one and all. 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. The deliberations at Nagercoil will be a step in this direction.

    I humbly request all the senior and junior colleagues to participate in big numbers to present their work and participate in discussion to improve the quality of research deliberations.

    The success of any conference depends upon the combined efforts of a team. We know that Kanyakumari has a tremendous team working for TNOACON-2018, and we can hope for a wonderful conference.

    I express my sincere wishes to the organising committee.

    With warm regards!
