Dear Friends, 

I have taken over as President of Brachial Plexus Surgery Group of India from Col.P.S. Bhandari in the last meeting of Brachialcon 2017 held at Mangalore.
It gives me immense pleasure and a great responsibility to be the President of the association and  the next congress is going to be held in 2019 at Chennai, where it was born.
Our society was started in 2004 by Prof.R.Venkataswami and15 years have gone, It is time for us to meet again in Chennai in 2019 and introspect ourselves about the future course of plan to further nurture and grow.       


Our society has grown into 80 members, but still largely inadequate for our ever growing population. The incidence of Brachial Plexus Injury also has not come down.It is time we take preventive measures to educate the public and college students about the importance of road safety, because Road Traffic Accidents are still the largest cause of Adult Brachial Plexus injury affecting the young  productive population  and devastating them for rest of their life.
At the same time we have to educate our colleagues in other specialities, the need for proper evaluation and surgical management in appropriate cases.  

Thanking you all and humbly request all your cooperation.

With regards,

Dr.V.Purushothaman M.S.(Gen) M.Ch (Plastic), MNAMS
