The measure of a professional expertise is best measured by the demand for him to teach other members of his profession. This is best exemplified by the number of requests and invitations which Dr Mody receives every month to lecture at national and international conferences. The Maharashtra Orthopaedic Association (MOA) in its recent annual meeting at Pune had requested Dr Mody to take up a debate topic related to the most scientific way of aligning the knee during knee replacement surgery. Later in the month Dr Mody was also invited as one of the keynote speakers and the Indian Arthroplasty Association (IAA) at its 15th annual conference. More than 15000 orthopaedic surgeons benefitted from the teaching by Dr Mody at these two conferences. Dr Mody is also the past president of IAA.
