The Orthopaedic  Association of South Indian States was formally inaugurated in July 2002  at Hyderabad with the following Aims and Objects.  

To bring the Orthopaedic fraternity of member states namelyTelangana, Andhra  Pradesh,  Karnataka, Kerala,Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry under one roof to exchange scientific data and research.
To conduct multi center epidemiologic surveys to identify and treat common Orthopaedic problems.
To search for low cost therapies
To impart Orthopaedic knowledge amongst all Orthopaedic surgeons both urban & rural.
To maintain modern reference libraries.
To advice medical council of India on Orthopaedic Training and education.
To monitor quality control on Orthopaedic implants.

The  special features of OASIS are that there is no Elections / Collection.  The Association runs on a one-time corpus fund from each state  association for all its life members and conference donation. No special  subscription is charged to a member towards this association. The  office bearers also are nominated through a process of consensus from  each state association.

The association is now registered under the Registrar of Society Act at Chennai bearing registration No.501/2002.

The  concept of starting such an association has been in the minds of senior  orthopaedic surgeons from Southern States of India over almost last  15years but these attempts ended up only in conduct of conferences at  Trichy, Mangalore, Chennai and Vijayawada without a proper constitution  and byelaws.

The  attempts were revived in the year 2000, when senior surgeons like  Dr.A.Subramanian and Dr.K.Annamalai from Tamil Nadu, Dr.Basheer Ahmed  and Dr.Sunny Pazhayathil from Kerala, Dr.J.S.Hegde and Dr.M.Shantaram  Shetty from Karnataka, Dr.A.Srinivasa Rao and Dr.Adinarayana Rao from  Andhra Pradesh thought of putting forth an organization.  Dr.P.V.Vijayaraghavan took it upon himself to co-ordinate these initial  attempts and organized an action committee meeting at Chennai on the  27th May 2001 through the initiative of Tamilnadu Orthopaedic  Association.

The  credit for the proposal of the name * OASIS * goes to Kerala  Orthopaedic Association. The 1st cheque towards the * Corpus Fund * came  from Karnataka Orthopaedic Association and the Logo for the Association  was provided by Andhra Pradesh. The Tamil Nadu Orthopaedic Association  was responsible for the formation and later ratification of the  constitution and bye laws of the association.
