After finishing his MBBS from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Dr Naufal Nahas was fortunate to join the orthopedics department at the prestigious Kasturba Medical College at Manipal, Udupi. There he completed his three years of residency under various units during which he was exposed to hand surgery, microsurgery, spine surgery, trauma management, sports injury and arthroplasty. He was fortunate to be trained by great teachers like Prof. S.P Mohanty, Prof. Sharath K Rao and Prof Anil K Bhat at the MAHE university. His work on the rare upper limb deficiency, the Radial Club Hand was widely accepted and well appreciated among hand surgeons at the ISSHCON conference held at Ranchi in 2017 and also fetched him the ‘Best Thesis Award’ at the state conference of Karnataka, KOACON 2017. Later on in 2018, the same was accepted and published in the Journal of Hand Surgery, American edition.
During his residency, he developed immense interest for Joint Replacements. Following his residency, he moved to New Delhi to pursue further training under Prof. Anil Arora where he improved his skills on Total Knee and Hip replacements. It was there he met his mentor, Dr Apurv Mehra who gave him the confidence and helped him escalate his skills to international standards. With Dr Apurv Mehra, he has been serving the people of East Delhi and providing excellent care in the field of orthopaedics.

Students learn from Conceptual Orthopedics
At Conceptual Orthopedics we try to cater every possible knowledge we have acquired through our experience in the field of orthopaedics. By using this app any student who enters this wonderful branch can learn every possible topic related to orthopedics. The student is at the advantage of gaining this knowledge despite the institution he/she does his/ her post-graduation. This allows the student to learn and even enjoy the subject despite the stressful environments he has to work in. the resident doesn’t have to run to any library leaving their duties and responsibilities as a doctor to learn. They can utilize every bit of free time they get while executing their duties, clarifying each and every doubt they encounter at the swipe of their fingers. The aim is not only clearing their exams but also help them and guide them in the right path so that they have a clear idea and interest in one particular area so as to become better doctors as well as better human beings.
Like Prof Anil Dhal rightly said. “The students need not worry about the institute at which they are doing their post-graduation as long as they have the Conceptual Orthopedics app with them. As the English proverb says ‘Born with a Silver spoon’ but with Conceptual Orthopedics, one has the opportunity to acquire a Golden spoon”.
