The Paediatric Orthopaedic Society of India was inaugurated in Mumbai in 1994. The objectives were to get together professionals interested in pediatric orthopaedics on a common platform and to serve as an academic body for facilitating the exchange of knowledge and technology relevant to pediatric orthopaedics.
Society has taken firm roots and is thriving. Each annual conference has been good in scientific content and the deliberations have been very rewarding. The POSI has become a member of IFPOS (The International Federation of Paediatric Orthopaedic Societies) and has also been granted affiliation to the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America. Our links with Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons from around the world have grown further with guest lecturers from the USA, UK, Australia, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, South Korea and Singapore attending our annual meetings over the last twenty-two years. We have been represented on the Editorial Boards of the JPO and the JPO-B. A few articles from our members have been published in international journals.
The POSITIVE has been used as the official vehicle for transmitting information on recent trends in the field of Paediatric Orthopaedics to its members. Each issue of POSITIVE has included abstracts of selected articles that the Editors felt may be of practical use to the members.
It is now time for us to strive to improve the quality of Paediatric Orthopaedic care across the country. In order to achieve this aim, it is essential that more well-established centres of Paediatric Orthopaedics start short term training programmes. The formation of study groups for collaborative clinical research is another urgent area of need. A concerted effort in this direction should be our immediate aim.
The mission of the Indian Orthopaedic Research Group (IORG) is to promote orthopaedic research in India by helping individual orthopaedic surgeons and clinical departments throughout the country. The focus of the group is to:
· Help publish research studies in various international and national peer-reviewed journals
· Design and conduct research studies
· Establish academic research divisions in institutions that will initiate and sustain research projects
· Conduct high quality basic and clinical research studies through collaboration with various institutions and industries
· Publish peer-reviewed journals to provide a platform for Indian Orthopaedic researchers to publish their work
ResearchOne Publication is the branch of the Indian Orthopaedic Research Group.
