Sir,

Thanks for showing keen interest in my article published in IJO [1] and for your comments [2] along with concurrence to my thoughts.

The “reform in orthopedic education” and ensuring “minimum standard of care for all” are certainly a need of hour. If the process is started, the quality of patient care will improve exponentially and will reduce the morbidity, loss of person-day, and orthopedic handicap. The most important problem is how to start the reform and who will take lead in initiating the process. Unfortunately, this is not happening at the level of regulating bodies. I personally feel if a concrete proposal by expert group is sent to regulatory bodies, they will certainly consider it, deliberate it, and execute the changes. The leadership in Indian Orthopaedic Association has to initiate the process.
