It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you as the member of the Brachial Plexus Surgery Group of India. Though small having 78 life members and 7 Honorary members till date as compared to the other academic organizations, our association is dedicated to a single pathology of the brachial plexus.

I feel privileged to be the secretary and treasurer of the association founded in 2004, with the vision to promote the brachial plexus Surgery in India in interest of improving the patient care. In spite of the large number of the patients suffering from the brachial plexus injury in the country the progress of the association is relatively slow. I feel there are two main reasons for this. First is the lack of knowledge of this specialty in the medical and paramedical personnel itself forget about the lay people. Second reason I feel, is the lack of structured education programme in the educational institutions for the management of brachial plexus injuries.

We, as the brachial plexus surgeons, have the responsibility towards general public to improve the outcome of management of these injuries. Lot needs to be done in the coming years. We need to chalk out the structured programme for the training of the young surgeons. We should organize frequent hands on workshops in the educational institutions with the help of the society. In this regard, I welcome all the members to come forward for organizing the academic activity for the society. We will definitely promote these activities by involving the senior members of the society and try to work sincerely to achieve the goals of the society.

The website is the face of the society and we are trying to revamp the website and to make it more interactive for the members. We propose to have the discussion forum on the website to provide the solutions to the difficult problems.

I am sure the association will become more vibrant in the coming years and I seek your co-operation and help in this regard.
