Prof. Manish Khanna
It always gives me immense pleasure to be a part of IORA Cargo team. IORA is expected to go a long way in the academic development of Orthopaedic Rheumatology in our country. I hope that the doctors and scientists of India who have already been rendering phenomenal services of highest quality to the nation will be benefited by the various academic activities of IORA. Our association provides the opportunity of interacting with renowned experts from reputed institutions across the Globe. This opportunity of learning and interaction is of immense value to boost the scientific enthusiasm among the delegates ( although this continuous learning has no limit as such but surely it updates our knowledge which leads to rendering better services to mankind). One of the few mile stones achieved by IORA is the successful continuous publication of our International journal of Orthopaedic Rheumatology. The journal has on its board International as well as National Editorial members . IJOR focuses on all aspects of Orthopaedic Rheumatology including the clinical research. It covers all aspects of the subject from basic science to clinical management as well the broad areas of the epidemiology related to Orthopaedic Rheumatology. The journal is a peer-reviewed official journal of IORA. The Journal regularly provides Original review and research articles along with case reports. The increasing role of Orthopaedic rheumatology research is providing a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the Journal.
Last but not the least , for the last few years IORA has been focussing on academic advancements in Orthopaedic rheumatology with Regenerative science. Stem cell therapy in orthopaedics holds a positive future in treating certain conditions which face many challenges in the available treatment modalities of today. Conditions like AVN head of femur, moderate stage of progressive OA, uncontrolled Rheumatoid Arthritis, DMD pose enormous challenges to the Orthopaedic Surgeon providing the treatment. Cell therapy is the most important strategy in the treatment of the above mentioned conditions.
On behalf of IORA we appreciate the support given by all the members (IORIANS) to the Organization .
LONG LIVE IORA
