Welcome to Paediatric Orthopaedic Society of India

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 exchange of knowledge and technology relevant to pediatric orthopaedics.The 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 USA, UK, Australia, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, South Korea and Singapore attending our annual meetings over the last twenty four 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.

Kini and many others spread out in different parts of the country. In Mumbai, Dr. P. K. Mullaferoze, Dr. K. T. Dholakia and others were keeping the flag flying high. Inspite of all this, children were hardly getting the attention they deserved. 1994 was to change all this!
Numerous discussions between Prof. Ashok Johari & Prof. Benjamin Joseph, both predominant paediatric orthopaedic surgeons, centred on the need for an academic society to further the objectives of orthopaedic treatment for children and for education and research in the field. In the 1990’s, starting specialised bodies was unheard of and required a lot of support from the hierarchy in Orthopaedics.
