Dr. David V. Rajan, organising chair of the symposium, said, “Aging knee is more common than is generally realised. If left untreated, it may cause significant impairment in older people. The purpose of this symposium is to raise knowledge of minimally invasive surgery methods and correct diagnosis of aging knees. Also, Halt Sports Injuries (HSI), an initiative by Ortho-One will be launched during the inauguration of ‘The Athletic Knee’ at Gee Dee Auditorium on June 16.”

Dr. Santosh Sahanand, the organising secretary of the symposium, said “The Athletic Knee’ symposium is targeted towards improving awareness at the grassroot level about simple methods that can be adopted in training to enhance performance across major sports. Tips to jump higher, run faster, using mobile phone videos to analyse biomechanics, selecting the ideal footwear for your sports, etc., are just a few of the many tips that would be shared by experts during the event.” For registration, contact: 95803 71371.
