Dear Friends,

We the organisers of WIROC 2017 asks you all to join us in “Disasters in Orthopaedics – Prevention, Diagnosis & Management”. This is the theme of WIROC 2017, where we aim to share experiences of the faculty in avoiding & solving Orthopaedic catastrophes. Yes friends, we will discuss subjects which were taboo. They were avoided & neglected in past years, right from intraop broken instruments to missing equipment to problems during implant removal.

Under the leadership of President Dr. C. J. Thakkar, we Dr. Harshad Argekar & Dr. Neeraj Bijlani will attempt to unravel the dark side of orthopaedic surgery, its disasters. We will empower you to anticipate, identify, preempt & tackle intraop complications with the skill imparted by the masters who have “been there & done that”. In addition to this we have the usual flavours of WIROC, the free papers, symposia, debates & orations. We assure you that this WIROC will focus on content rather than glamour, method rather than result & delegates rather than faculty. We Dr. Harshad Argekar & Dr. Neeraj Bijlani will attempt to give you a WIROC you will remember.
