 Over 500 Orthopedics Discuss Tackling Foot and Ankle Injuries in India

Over 500 orthopedics participated in a conference in New Delhi aimed at improving medical treatment for ankle and foot injuries in India.

Currently, over 50% of Indians having ankle or foot problems undergo surgery in hospitals of medically advanced Western countries as India lacks several advanced treatment procedures.

"India lacks advanced medical procedures for foot and ankle injuries. Even for surgeries, patients prefer undergoing surgeries outside India," said Dr. R. Bhalla, senior consultant and former chairman of the department of orthopedics at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where the event was held.

Dr. Bhalla further added, "Most of the young orthopedics in India frequently misunderstand and misdiagnose ankle injuries. The delegates benefited from the lectures and hands-on workshop on managing foot deformities and latest medical techniques available for the deformities. By organizing this conference, we have brought various foot and ankle specialists on one platform to teach young surgeons to diagnose and treat a broad range of foot and ankle conditions that can occur at any stage of life, from newborn to teen years and from active adults to seniors."
