WELCOME TO KOACON 2022

My dear colleagues and friends,


It is indeed an honour and privilege for me as President of Karnataka Orthpaedic Association to welcome all of you to the 46th annual conference of the KOA to be held from 6th to 8th May 2022 at St. John's College, Bengaluru. Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India, has evolved as a major healthcare hub of both national and international significance. 


Orthopaedics today is a fountainhead, where specialization and expertise are the norm, rather than an exception. KOACON 2022 gives you an opportunity to meet, learn and interact with visionaries at the state, national and international level. Bengaluru in February has an excellent salubrious climate for us to meet, greet and socialize with each other. 


The scientific program is designed to not only stimulate you, but it also envisions to share with you a plethora of topics from general orthopaedics to various subspecialties encompassing everyday dilemmas to rare predicaments. 


We, the KOACON 2022 team, will leave no stone unturned to see that you will benefit immensely from this conference both academically and socially. Presidential theme is Perfection through Precision. Hence we have various programs for this year like webinar series, PG teaching programs, workshops in Districts, short fellowship programs. I request all members to utilize the programs.


Looking forward to meet you in person.
