It has now become one of the most active State chapters in IOA and Maharashtra is proud to have produced many leaders and pioneers in Indian Orthopaedics.

Keeping the same Spirit of Pioneers in Orthopaedic Academics, MOA is now running the online version of ‘The Journal of Maharashtra Orthopaedic Association’ (JMOA) since 1995. Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery is a continuity of the Journal of Maharashtra Orthopaedic Association.

Maharashtra Orthopaedic Association (MOA)

We at Maharashtra Orthopedic Association are proud to present our website www.mahaortho.org in a new form. We are pleased to offer our members exciting features like Online registration of new members plus a continuous online updated dynamic member database for better communication. We introduce a facility to share in between members for difficult cases and problems of the day-to-day practice. There is an academic section that includes archives of presentations, video techniques, and weekly academic articles. In the photo gallery, the memories of past MGOACONs and MOARCONS and other meetings.

The idea is to fulfill our President Dr. Ajit Shinde’s objective…” Together Towards Excellence in Orthopaedics “ by sharing our knowledge with each other. The evolution of the Maharashtra Orthopedic Association has been a result of contributions through hard work, sincerity, and dedication by a number of our colleagues. Every fraternity member belonging to the MOA contributes to its evolution in his or her own way.

Our senior members contribute by sharing their acquired knowledge and experience over the years. They then shape up the second line who in turn contributes by actively implementing this knowledge and mentoring fellow members. The most enthusiastic younger generation offers their contributions with new ideas and by presenting and publishing their innovations and observations. Every cadre in the field of orthopedics is important to contribute to the growth of MOA.

To implement these features, we look forward to our members’ enthusiastic contributions, support, and suggestions on how we can better this effort. Your suggestions form a valuable part of this process. Some of these features are under development and would be available soon.
