Appeal to all IORG Members

To all IORG Members, If you are giving a lecture or having a presentation at WIROC 2011, Please inform us regarding your Presentation and Date and Time of presentation. You can either give details on our Facebook forum or send us details at .  We will announce the same on our Facebook forum and the information will immediately reach all 5000 IORG Members. All IORG members will be informed about your presentation and more members will be able to attend your presenatation.

In recent times, we have seen very poor attendance at scientific sessions in conferences. Through IORG we will be able to inform our members regarding presenation by another IORG member and this will in turn increase the attendance at scientific sessions. We will be doing this for all conferences from now on and urge our members to keep us informed regarding their presentations or lectures with details of date, time, and venue of the conference.


Scientific Programme for WIROC 2011

Scientific Programme: Conference - Day 1: Friday, December 30, 2011
9.00 am – 10.00 am Symposium on Controversies in management of skeletal trauma

Topic: Stimulation of Bone Regeneration - Osteobiologics and Beyond
Speaker: Dr. S C Goel
Regeneration of bone is required in various conditions in orthopaedics. Osteobiologic adjuvants that substitute in bone graft have recently been popularized. Hydroxyapatite and Tricalcium phosphate are two commonly used substitutes. Demineralised bone matrix and BMP are also used for bone regeneration. The basis of bone formation in these has been studied.Various growth factors (IGF, Platelet like growth factors etc) have come into picture now. Mesenchymal stem cells are the latest biological to aid bone formation. We have used MSCs to treat nonunions.

Dr. SC Goel is Professor of Orthopaedics at Institute of Medical Sciences, BHU, Varanasi. He has been active in basic research in field of bone substitutes and implant failure. He has received various awards including IOA Silver Jubillee Commamoration Lecture and BOS Best Treatise award and delivered many orations. He has been Editor of Indian Journal of Orthopaedics and President of Indian Orthopaedic Association. He has been awarded Girdlestone Scholarship of Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford University, UK and IOA - INOR Foreign Fellowship of Indian Orthopaedic Association, UK. He has published 79 papers, Chapters in 9 Books and edited a book on Difficult Hip Fractures.
