Mr Arpit Jariwala, Director of UDOTS, stated:

“It’s a great privilege to be asked by the WBOACON organising committee to speak at this prestigious conference and I feel honoured to be invited to deliver the prestigious Professor A.K. Saha Oration. I’d be delighted to share how evidence has moulded and structured my upper limb practice over the last six years as a Consultant Upper Limb and Trauma Surgeon in Dundee, Scotland, which has allowed me to offer the best treatment for my patients and help them achieve their desired outcomes.

In addition, I'll share some of my most interesting cases at the Pre-Conference Meeting on 6th February at PEERLESS Hospital, which I’m sure will be of interest for the attendees and stimulate some discussion.

Also, I'm looking forward to meeting many of our MCh (Orth), Dundee Almuni from West Bengal and surrounding states as I missed catching up with them at IOACON 2019.

I’d like to thank the whole of the WBOACON Organising and Scientific committee including Dr K.K. Mukhopadhyay, Dr P.S. Sarkar, Dr R Raman and Dr S Samanta for this opportunity. I’d also like to thank Dr Amitav Mukherjee, an MCh (Orth) Dundee Alumni and good friend, without whose help this trip would not have been possible.”
