Bengaluru, November 02, 2018
Respected Organising Chairman Dr H S Chandrashekar
Organising Secretary Dr Satish Shervegar,
Scientific Committee Chairman Dr Rajeev Naik, Dr Rajendra,
Eminent orthopaedic surgeons from abroad, from all over India, from Karnataka and from Bengaluru,
Ladies and Gentlemen.
1. It is a great honor and pleasure for me to be part of inauguration of the Second Bengaluru Trauma course 2018.
2. I congratulate the organizing team for bringing out a well thought out conference on orthopaedic trauma and its sub specialities.
3. I am aware that the first conference of this kind which was also held in Bengaluru was a great success and the beneficiaries were the common man and ailing.
4. I have a very high regard for the medical fraternity of our State which has many acclaimed achievements to its credit.
5. Doctors and Surgeons play a very dominant role in keeping the health condition of people in good state.
6. The conferences of this kind will help surgeons to update their knowledge and to fathom the new technologies and innovations that's happening in the medical field.
7. The demand for Orthopaedic surgeons and their services is on the rise because of increasing road accidents, with the increase in the ageing of our population and their desire to stay functional at all ages. As doctors, you are the guardian angels for so many people.
8. With the motto of ‘Health for all’ Government of Karnataka has given utmost priority to provide affordable healthcare to the people of the State. It has set up more than 10 trauma care centres across the states on national highways.
9. Apart from this, Karnataka has the legacy of having Government Health Institutes such as Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology, Kidwai Cancer Institute, Sanjay Gandhi Institute of trauma and Orthopaedics and NIMHANS etc. which have turned to be saviour of life for thousands of poor people.
10. Our Government is committed to set up such super speciality hospitals in every division of the state, to make secondary and tertiary healthcare accessible to people of remote areas of the state.
11. Moreover our government is focusing on providing modern healthcare equipments in these institutes and also ensure that they are functional.
12. But I am very much aware that Government institutes alone cannot cater to the needs of the poor. Expertise of private doctors should also be available to them.
13. During Janata Darshan, most of the people come to me seeking financial aid to meet out the cost for their medical expenses. Poor people find it difficult to meet out the expenditure of kidney, heart and other such ailments in private hospitals.
14. Hence I feel that, private hospitals should evolve some mechanism and show kindness to help the poor patients. My sincere request to all the doctors here is to render their services to the poor also.
15. This will make our State a champion in healthcare sector.
16. I hope this conference will be platform to exchange of ideas.
17. My sincere advice to you people to be open to lifelong learning. Be conscientious, competent and compassionate in your service to patients.
18. I wish the “Second Bengaluru Trauma course 2018” all the success and hope that the deliberations in the conference will help in improving the knowledge of our surgeons and in turn will benefit the common man in a considerable way.
19. I wish the conference a resounding success.
