Respected and Worthy POA members,


The 36th International Pak OrthoCon 2023 has proceeded smoothly, with a significant number of participants, which reflects the excellent work done by the organizers. The first online elections for the new Executive Board were conducted, and Alhamdulillah, we have taken charge of President and Secretary General of POA during the oath-taking ceremony at the Annual General Body Meeting on November 3, 2023, held at Hotel PC in Karachi.

We are deeply grateful to all of you for placing your trust in us and electing us as the President and Secretary General of POA. With the help of Almighty Allah PAK, we will do our utmost to fulfill our vision, mission, and other responsibilities as outlined in the POA Constitution and Bylaws, with unwavering commitment.

Our objectives include developing harmony among POA members, promoting subspecialties, seeking fellowship opportunities abroad, fostering relationships with sister organizations in the region, and enhancing the POA Constitution and bylaws.

Furthermore, we aspire to elevate the Pakistan Orthopaedic Association on an International platform. While our goals are ambitious, we are confident that, with your support and prayers to Almighty Allah, we can strive to achieve them.

We firmly believe that no single individual can achieve significant progress alone, and therefore, we are committed to working collaboratively with all our honourable members.

In this regard, we would greatly appreciate your valuable suggestions to enhance and advance POA at par with regional and international association in the best interest of the orthopedic community.

Warm regards,

Prof. Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Khan

Prof. Dr. Lal Muhammad Kakar
