Dr. Sabin Viswanath PRESIDENT KOA

 Dear friends,

As | step down from the post of the President of Kerala’s Orthopaedic fraternity,! have

Am tried to keep its flag running high.

In the year gone by,we have tried to motivate orthopaedic surgeons to introspect on their health and wellness issues, initiating all to take up IMA health schemes .

The KOA land and house in Kochi still remains a dream .It is important that we do it without much delay.

The KOA bye laws over the years have been compiled and its amendment and registration needs to be done at the earliest.

The elections this year have seen a good response with a good turn out ;however | reiterate that online voting too be incorporated on the Indian Orthopaedic Association model,to ensure exercising cent percent franchise by our fellow members.

We need to have more structured academic events running through out the year,for our learning.

I offer the incoming team my whole hearted support and a great year ahead.



Dear teachers and friends,

Wish you all a very happy ,peaceful and victorious year ahead.

We have started our year with great achievements…

KOA emerged as the second best state chapter in the recently concluded IOACON.

KOA cricket tournament is just finished at Mangalapuram cricket ground and i take this opportunity to congratulate Kollam orthopaedic society for conducting the tournament well in the neighbouring district.

Its again election time for KOA.

This year for the first time we are conducting election with physical voting.At the outset i wish to thank and congratulate the club presidents who took the responsibility of returning officers. Looking forward with great expectations on next bunch of leaders to take KOA to newer horizons.

Our byelaw is not registered after 1992.As per executive decision we have compiled our byelaw in a legal format and draft send to all for suggestions.. We are conducting a special GB along with KOACON for ratification of same. Requesting all to be a part of special GB to make our byelaw foolproof and to get it registered the earliest .
