Welcome to

It is with immense honour and pleasure that we invite you all to the 6th Trauma Update, on behalf of the Association of Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeons, to be held from October 16 - 18, 2020 at Kolkata. This year, we envision an academic event, rich in brilliant course content & interactive workshop sessions to learn, interact & inspire from eminent National Faculty. The theme of this conference is "Lower Limb Fractures". The aim of our conference is to impart knowledge in such a way that each delegate can effectively put it into their practice from the very next day. We assure you that AOTS Trauma Update 2020 will be a complete package combined with academics, socialising and flavours of Kolkata - the city of joy. Apart from attending a thoroughly engaging conference, delegates will have a unique environment to meet colleagues from around the country, to exchange experiences & most importantly, to create memories that they will cherish forever.

See you all in Kolkata.
Warm Regards
