He met professor Keenan Josseph, the pioneer of universal hip screening for children along with other national and international faculties.

In Paediatrics-Orthopaedics, there are 2 major situations like developmental dysplasia of hip and hip dislocation in cerebral palsy children. These scenarios make the child walk with difficulties, sometimes painful and finally make them handicapped. To avoid such future disabilities and major surgical intervention neonatal and childhood hip screening is important.

This meeting came into an agreement to formulate guidelines for early hip screening to avoid a painful cascade of future. This meeting created a pathway to start the implementation of guidelines in the community. It is comparatively easy to start with such new ideas in KIMS what Dr. Sahoo is expecting.
