Orthopaedics in India is developed by many stalwarts by the dint of their inventions and innovations. Sen’s nail is one of them that were invented by Prof. (Dr.) Biswajit Sen from Kolkata, India, in 1973 as a solution to deal with peritrochanteric fractures in elderly. Though the “Sen’s nail” is not in use now a days (because of the advent of newer and better implant and technology for such fractures), it is absolutely imperative to convey to posterity about this lifetime work and obsession of Prof. (Dr.) Biswajit Sen.
