Kerala Orthopaedic Association KOA
Formation of Kerala Orthopaedic Association
The idea of forming KOA was first mooted by Prof. K.I.George as early as Dec. 1967 when a seminar on Rehabilitation and research activities was conducted at Trivandrum Medical College. The then secretary of IOA attended this meeting and in his presence preliminary steps to form the association were taken. But somehow things did not turn out as planned and the cruel fate snatched away the life of Prof.K.I.George in 1970. Even though orthopaedic units in Medical Colleges and in Health services started functioning in the late sixties. It was only after two decades Kerala Orthopaedic Association was formed. . .
