Given the prevalence of back and neck pain experienced by 60% of patients, it comes as no surprise that the need for medical professionals who are knowledgeable on the subject continues to rise at an exponential rate. Thanks to the Vidarbha Orthopaedic Society, medical professionals will have an unprecedented opportunity to attend a three-day workshop specifically focused on managing neck and back pain in patients.

Key Takeaways:

  • Right on November 11, a preconference workshop focusing on spine has been organized.
  • VOS secretary Dr Alankar Ramteke said, “Foot and ankle are the most neglected area in orthopaedics. Even till day, the city doesn’t have a super-specialist.”
  • There will be a talk on ‘Land of ligaments and ankles’ by Dr Mark Hardy from United States (US). Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Diarmuid Murphy from Singapore will guide on complex trauma situations.

“A grand quiz will be held on 11 for the first time where students from different colleges making up eight teams will participate.”
