Secretary’s Message

Respected Teachers, Seniors and My Dear Friends,

Greetings from the office of Maharashtra Orthopedic Association

At the outset, I am thankful to all my executive committee and MOA members for their kind cooperation during first year of my tenure as Hon secretary cum treasurer of our beloved association. I am happy that this year has ended smoothly without any hurdles and chaos. I always believe in teamwork and believe that “when “I” is replaced by “We”, even “illness” becomes “wellness”

We at MOA office aim at discipline, transparency, time management and updated technology. I am thankful to Dr Kanaujia sir and Dr Nitin Deshpande and entire team MOA for guiding me throughout the year

Our President Dr Parag Sancheti has taken over as President from MOACON2017. The Presidential theme for this year is “Orthopedic Excellence Through Technology”. We have planned so many new activities this year. To name few of them are MOA marathon (4TH MARCH), RESEARCH CELL, MOA DAY(1ST MAY), TRAUMA REGISTRY and so on…

The first marathon of MOA with other organizations like FSAI, PMC, FIRE BRIGADE, PANCHASHHEL and others on the 4th march was a grand success. More than 1200 participants and a message about safety and health were the main components of a marathon. Hearty congratulations to our President Dr Parag Sancheti sir for his efforts taken for this event.

Similarly, MOA day will be celebrated on 1st may 2018 and free OPD check-up camp, awareness talks on bone health and road safety will be organized across the state on this day. We appeal all the MOA members to take an active part in this activity

Meet the master at Nagpur and Faculty Orientation Program at Aurangabad are our pilot projects and such five faculty orientation programs in five regions of Maharashtra are in pipeline. These programs match with the theme of IOA President Dr Mandeep Dhillon(TRAIN THE YOUTH TO ENSURE THE FUTURE) and our MOA President Dr Parag Sancheti(ORTHOPEDIC EXCELLENCE THROUGH TECHNOLOGY).

Our next and important activity this year is a membership drive. We aim to add 200 plus members of both MOA as well as IOA this year. A separate committee has been formed for this work. Many more activities to come in this year. Dr Pramod Shinde will be chairman of this committee

Thanking you all in anticipation

Yours in service of MOA,













Dr Prakash Sigedar

Hon. Secretary CUM treasurer
Maharashtra Orthopedic Association and Team MOA (2018-19)
