IBOS conference held

IBOS (Indian Biologics Orthopaedic Society) second annual conference was held on Mar 29 at Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education, Porur.
Dr. B.Samuel Chittaranjan (HOD, Orthopaedic Surgery, Believers Church Medical College, Tiruvella, Kerala) was inaugurated the conference.
He said biologics, especially cell biology should become part of teaching and training in Orthopaetics in addition to the conventional medicine, surgery and physiotherapy.
Dr.P.V.Vijayaraghavan (Vice chancellor, SRIHER) said biological products not only provide a variety of options but moves towards a more natural healing.
Dr.M.S.Dhillon (President Indian Biologics Orthopaedic Society) in his speech said Biologicals hold great promise in treatment of orthopaedic problems but cost will be the most inhibiting factor for some time to come. But if countries invest in volumes and guarantee bio-product manufacturers a fair return on their investments it can be made available to a large number of patients when the cost will certainly come down.
Organising Chairman of the conference and Director, Centre for Sports Science and HOD Arthroscopic Surgery, SRMC, Dr.S.Arumugam said that recent techniques and concepts using natural biological substances like PRP, BMAC, Stem-cells, Adipocytes, Autologous Conditioned Serum, Gene Therapy have revolutionised the management of various painful orthopaedic conditions.
The proceedings of the conference have been made available live over webcasting for the medical practitioners who could not attend the conference in person, he added.
