Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

Welcome to WIROC 2020 UNLOCKED! As we are gradually unlocking from this extra-ordinary pandemic situation, we are learning how to live with it as well. Now we are not panicked by the rising number of cases, but are learning how to manage it. We accept it as part of our day to day life as life has to move on...

IOACON 2020 Mumbai got postponed to next year. Hence, we need to act as per our constitution and hold our Annual Meeting, our beloved WIROC before the end of this Academic year. We decided to have it in March 2021 to give maximum opportunity to have a physical meeting. We met enough on virtual platform, discussed maximum Orthopaedics pertaining to different subspecialties on Zoom, YouTube, Facebook and what not. Now the time has come to meet and greet each other, have our social interaction, have our networking but without forgetting the face-to-face friendly argument on our common platform of Academic Orthopaedics.

Hence let’s cherish WIROC 2020 UNLOCKED, which will open up all our desire of comradery, togetherness and friendship. Please start sending your abstracts soon. We shall inform you our gradually opening up process in due course as per the prevailing Government regulations. Please don’t hesitate to send your valuable suggestions on drssmohanty@hotmail.com.

Best regards,

WIROC 2020-Unlocked!

What a year it has been...!!

The world we live in today is not the same as the one we lived in a few months ago...

As our world came to a grinding halt on 19th March 2020, with the first announcement of the “Janata curfew”, the words “lockdown”, “social distancing” and “flattening the curve” came by in our vocabularies. With travel and social gatherings banned, we adapted ourselves by including webinars, “zoom meetings” and web conferences in our lives. However, as the curve starts flattening and the lockdown seems to be ending, we feel and sincerely hope that the end of the pandemic is upon us. It is a time for us to move on, albeit with great caution.

With this hope, we the organizing team of WIROC 2020 would like to invite you to the first post-pandemic conference - the WIROC-Unlocked... from 19th - 21st March 2021 in Mumbai.

This will herald a new beginning- a new hope and a new “Normal”... We will take the utmost care to meet all the health guidelines and requirements and will endeavor to make it an academically enriching, socially entertaining, healthy and safe experience.

Come, join us exactly one year after our lives changed...
Come, meet us in Mumbai for WIROC UNLOCKED….!!
