Bangladesh Orthopaedic Society is one of the most resplendent professional societies in the country. Being founded on 24th August, 1979, the society emphasized the development of orthopaedic surgery to a level consistent with global standard while fostering friendship and collaboration among its members. To this day, Bangladesh’s orthopaedic society has developed to the point where it participates in international exchanges, academic pursuits and social activities.
BOS is a member of numerous international organizations, including OASAC, APOA’s federation, EFORT’s associate membership program, ASAMI’s Bangladesh Chapter, the Eurasian Orthopaedic Forum, the Association of Traumatologists and Orthopaedists of Russia (ATOR), and Jaipur Foot of India. In order to support spine surgery, BOS collaborates with the AO Alliance Foundation, the West Bengal Orthopaedic Association (WBOA), SIGN Fracture Care International, and other organizations. The glorious flourish of Bangladesh Orthopaedic Society during the last couple of years really amazed all concerned for wide spread international interaction, academic and scientific activity and nationally committed services.
I remember with immense gratitude Prof. R. J. Garst who dedicated his life for establishing RIHD by the guidance of Bangubandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman which is now known as NITOR, center of excellence of orthopaedic & trauma, from where started the journey of orthopaedic surgery in Bangladesh. With the establishment of twelve storied building in 2017, NITOR became the largest orthopaedic hospital in Asia. I express my heartful thanks to the members of Bangladesh Orthopedic Society who are the backbone of orthopaedic and trauma services centered in NITOR, BSMMU, and other medical colleges & also in some corporate hospitals in Bangladesh.
