Editorial: From the Editor-in-Chief

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness is still another mile—–ABBA Song (1979)

The Executive managing committee of the Bombay Orthopaedic Society (BOS)had a dream, and this Journal of Clinical Orthopaedics christened as JCORTH is their reality. I am grateful and excited at the opportunity to share the dream and vision as the Editor in Chief. The untiring support of my editorial board, the contribution of the international and national authors, has seen the fruition and the first issue is in your hands. In this 21st century, we are hurtling down the highway of information and knowledge in orthopaedics, evidence based orthopaedics, newer trends , orthobiologics and use of robots. This inaugural issue carries invited articles on topics of clinical interests and other important issues in clinical orthopaedics, besides a potpourri of selected articles from different journals in various sub specialities and case reports. Newer and more expensive treatments do not necessarily guarantee better outcomes in disease specific situation, but an analysis of relevant treatment adapted to suit the patients need is tantamount to success. The “case studies” are evidence based situation, long term follow up studies are guidances to remain patient focussed, within a strong scientific background. “My journey through orthopaedics” by one of the doyens of orthopaedics is another highlight of the journal, that we hope will be a source of inspiration for us all. We at the editorial board hope, you will enjoy and benefit from reading the journal. We would appreciate your effort of sending in papers/research/case studies for publication in future issues. Your constructive criticism, observations and involvement in our endeavour, would also be valued and welcomed by the editorial board.
I sign off in the words of William Shakespeare.
“We know what we are, but know not what we may be”
We will certainly strive our best to make the journal an indexed one and will leave no stone unturned in this journey.
