Dear IOA Members,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 68th Annual Conference of the Indian Orthopaedic Association which will be held at the Ekana Sports City, Lucknow, India from December 14 - 17, 2023..

This mega event has attracted global leaders to participate and exchange expertise and to launch brilliant new ideas together. The scientific programme will focus on Symposia, Case Discussions, and Instructional Lectures given by distinguished speakers from India and across the world. This conference is designed for you to interact with experts; to share and enhance knowledge on the latest international research and technology and for interaction among peers.

It would, however, be incomplete without your participation, without free paper presentations and E-posters. We therefore encourage all of you to submit abstracts of your work so that we can put together an exceptional scientific programme. We are sure that this scientific extravaganza will advance orthopaedic knowledge and forge new friendships.

Apart from the invigorating scientific menu, this meeting will also offer its attendees an unforgettable cultural and culinary experience.

We look forward to seeing you and your family in Lucknow – you will be glad that you came and enjoyed the scientific and cultural spectacle, local cuisine, shopping and the warm 'Lucknowi' hospitality.
