History

Bangladesh Orthopaedic Society (BOS) is an Association of Orthopaedic and Trauma surgeons in Bangladesh. 850 Orthopaedic surgeons are now active members of Bangladesh Orthopaedic Society.

Orthopaedic Surgery in Bangladesh has a great historic beginning after the liberation war in 1971. Under direct supervision of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Dr. Ronald Joseph Garst, a missionary orthopaedic surgeon from USA had come forward to give treatment to the war injured freedom fighters. Afterwards, understanding necessity of orthopaedics & trauma surgery in Bangladesh, the government with the help of Dr. R. J. Garst and other renowned orthopaedic surgeons from home and abroad established RIHD which is now known as National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (NITOR), the centre of excellence of orthopaedics and trauma surgery in Bangladesh from where we have started the journey of orthopaedics surgery in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Orthopaedic Society (BOS) was formed on 24th August, 1979 with the objective to establish cooperation and friendship among the members and linking with other relevant associations in home and abroad for developing the subject to a world standard level. The envious flourish of BOS during the last couple of years really amazed all concerned for wide spread international interactions, academic and scientific activities and nationally committed services.
