As the new Executive Committee takes over, we need to ponder, are there any areas where we are becoming deficient. The first and foremost that comes to mind is the gradual disconnect that is growing between the Association and its constituents i.e. the Orthopaedic Surgeons of Delhi, both young and seniors. The attendance in most of DOA programmes/events is becoming thinner and lot of effort is invariably required to have a reasonable gathering at these events including the prestigious DOACON. Growing number of city’s elite institutions are organizing their independent major programmes or events without collaborating with DOA leading to duplication of efforts.
