The theme for this conference is: Transforming Knowledge into Practice and Practice into evidence. It emphasizes that practitioners contribute to research through their daily work, generating valuable information. The event aims to promote rational thinking, evidence-based discussions, and the sharing of knowledge and skills to foster progressive wisdom in the field of Pediatric Orthopaedics.

Time Topic
08:00 - 09:30 Hrs TRAUMA MODULE

Children are not miniature adults. In pediatric trauma, many of the anatomic factors are not visible in the radiographs and the periosteum is one of them. This trauma module is sure to trigger a transformation in the understanding of skeletal trauma by highlighting the role of periosteum in fracture healing, the skill of looking at this invisible entity and utilising its attributes to achieve desirable outcomes.
09:30 - 10:30 Hrs INFECTION MODULE

What is the evidence based practice in children’s osteoarticular infections? What are the usual and unusual presentations? What is unique about neonatal infections? What investigations are sensitive? How long to continue injectable antibiotics? How to suspect, confirm and treat Tubercular infections? These are the questions this infection module is designed to seek answers to.

This module will provide update on current evidence on Cerebral Palsy, Myopathies, Muscular Dystrophies, Developmental Delays, Neural Tube Defects and other neuromuscular disorders. This session will also provide guidelines for assessment and management of each of these entities.
16:30 - 18:00 Hrs HIP MODULE

Practitioners interested in paediatric hip disorders are sure to get their questions addressed in this session. The hip module will discuss about hip problem in children including, but no limited to DDH, Legg Calve Perthes Disease, Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis and will try to provide evidence based practice guidelines.

The Scientific Program will also include the following regular sessions:
1. POSI Oration: Hall 1 (10:30 - 11:00 Hrs)
2. Free Paper Session: Halls 1 & 2 (11:30 - 13:00 Hrs)
3. POSI Best Paper Session: 14:00 - 15:30 Hrs

Time Topic
08:00 - 09:00 Hrs TRAUMA MODULE

How to evaluate a swelling or a lytic lesion? How to differentiate a benign tumour from a malignant one? What to do in a bone cyst? Which exostoses to excise? How well do megaprostheses do? How early can we do a total joint replacement in a person? These and many more answers are waiting for the participants in the tumour module.
09:00 - 10:00 Hrs SPORTS INJURY MODULE

Every other kid in this country is a sports enthusiast. As involvement in sports activities is increasing, so are injuries and concerns regarding their effect in performance. Orthopaedic surgeons must have a crisp idea about sports injuries and similar conditions like discoid meniscus, patellar instability, hyperlaxity syndromes, popliteal cysts, Osteochondritis, rigid and symptomatic flatfeet etc. This module aims to settle common doubts regarding these issues.

This is a roller coaster of rapid sequence of video lectures. This crash course is studded with vital video techniques of office practice like casting etc and surgical procedures which are common in orthopaedic practice. This session is set to pace the tempo of the conference and keep everyone on their toes while providing valuable tips.

This is an immensely enriching session for the established Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons which discusses the common issues in a pedipod’s professional life. Setting an establishment, expanding practice, making a change in the society, teaching, opening fellowship programs, giving it back to the society, formulating guidelines, contributing to research; these are few of the goals a pedipod looks forward to. For a young pedipod, this session will provide a peek into the future and prepare him for what is going to come.
