President’s Message

"Regaining Integrity by self governance"

Albeit a good one year ahead, I consider it as my honor and pleasure to welcome you all to our state conference “KOACON” to be held in Bengaluru, in February 2019.

Perhaps it’s the passage of time, or perhaps it’s the enthusiasm of the members, but we have been witnessing our annual conferences getting better year after year. Likewise, I am positive that the conference of 2019 will turn out to be better than its predecessors. The conference team, under the chairmanship of Dr Muralidar, is planning extensively to make the conference a memorable one both in terms of academics and social extravaganza.

Meanwhile, I will be starting my presidency from February 2018 and I’m looking forward to focusing more on strengthening our orthopaedic association alongside doing my bit at addressing the current issues in our medical profession.

Like always, I acknowledge again that it is with your support we have achieved our targets. Along the same lines, I solicit your co-operation and interaction as and when needed.

I look forward to see you all in February 2019 at Bengaluru.


Organising Chairman’s Message

Dear friends, the organising committee of KOACON-2019 invites you to join us in achieving our goal of “ Regaining Integrity through self governance ”. Yes friends there is no doubt that we have kept ourselves abreast with the latest developments in the feld of Orthopaedic’s yet inspite of all our efforts there is suspicion regarding our health care capabilities , economical burden on patients and unscrupulous practice which has raised the eye brows of the general public and hence it’s the need of the hour to address this damage.

Of course we have to continue our efforts in coming together to learn & share our experiences and deliberate upon scientifc issues. So we have chosen a location - “Clark’s convention centre” which is tucked away from the madness and mundane of Bangalore city. It’s multitalented resort just 15 minutes drive from Bangalore airport and can fulfll every urban need and requirements of any size or stature and is suitable to conduct a conference.

The organising committee is making all out efforts to bring in eminent faculty from abroad, India and from all walks of life to enrich our knowledge and to ensure a memorable event to fulfll your expectations of a scientifc and social extravaganza . However no conference can be considered successful till there is an active participation from the fraternity in large numbers. Please mark the dates in your calendar and do come with families and enjoy our hospitality.
