Date: May 2, 2015

This meeting was organized by Dr. Chinmoy De, HOD, Department of Orthopaedics, Burdwan Medical College and Vice President, SSWB. This meeting was unique of its kind, as there was Live Surgery Demonstration with two way interaction between the Faculty and the participants. Two eminent spine surgeons from Kolkata, who are presently also the Office bearers of the Society had kindly consented to spare their valuable time in doing these surgical case demonstrations. There were two cases running concurrently : one patient with caries spine with paraparesis operated by Dr Saumyajit Basu, Consultant Spine Surgeon, Park Clinic, Kolkata and another patient with Lumbar Disc Prolapse operated for decompression/ discectomy by Dr. Abrar Ahmed, Consultant Spine Surgeon, Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata. The Live Surgery Demonstration was intermittently studded with very useful and relevant clinical lectures by various surgeons belonging to the Society for the benefit of the Post-graduate trainees. There was a very encouraging response from the participants and the 2 way communication between the participants and the Faculty was a grand success. The symposium concluded with EC Meeting and Lunch.
The following are the lectures that were included in the schedule comprising of topics relevant to the two surgical cases demonstrated:

1. Caries Spine: Clinical Presentation and Diagnosis ---Dr. Kiran Mukhopadhyay
2. Management of Caries Spine----Dr. Abrar Ahmed
3. Paediatric Caries Spine----Dr. Amitava Biswas
4. Pathogenesis and Clinical Features of Lumbar Disc Prolapse---Dr. Chinmoy Nath
5. Management of Lumbar Disc Prolapse---Dr Abhishek Ray

West Bengal Orthopaedic Association Conference (WBOACON) 2015

Date: Feb 14, 2015

The conference was held from February 13th to 15th at Shankarpur near Digha and was a grand success. For the first time, there was a dedicated session hosted by the Spine Society of West Bengal (SSWB) and it was very well attended. The session took place on 14th February 2015.

The session started off with a welcome address by the President of SSWB, Dr Kunal Sengupta followed by SSWB Oration, which was delivered by Dr Ram Chaddha, senior consultant Spine Surgeon, Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai and the current President of ASSI (Association of Spine Surgeons of India). He spoke extensively on OSTEOPOROTIC VERTEBRAL FRACTURES - CURRENT CONCEPTS and covered all the important aspects of the topic in an absorbing lecture. This was followed by two debates - one on MIS vs Open TLIF in degenerative low grade spondylolisthesis and the other on whether Reduction was always necessary in high grade spondylolisthesis. The former topic was debated by Dr Amitava Biswas, Park Clinic, Kolkata and Dr Prashant Baid, Apollo Hospital, Kolkata. The latter topic was debated by Dr Arvind Jayaswal, AIIMS, New Delhi and Dr Abrar Ahmed, Apollo Hospital, Kolkata. Both the debates were very lively and it was moderated along with a relevant case discussion by Dr Saumyajit Basu, Secretary SSWB.

This year, being the inaugural year of SSWB session in WBOACON, we were overwhelmed by the response from the delegates and we hope to come up with better and more interactive sessions in the future.
