COURSE OVERVIEW
This dynamic and interactive course will present a comprehensive
and unique review of both time-honored and cutting-edge options
for surgical reconstruction of the foot and ankle. Topics will include
high and low arches, hallux rigidus and hallux valgus, and arthrodesis.
Controversial issues will be addressed head on, recent innovations
will receive priority attention, and newer techniques and technological
advances will also be highlighted. The course is designed to be a
valuable educational experience for all those wishing to expand their
skills in treating arthritis and deformity – whether they be a general
orthopaedist, experienced foot and ankle surgeon, or a foot and
ankle fellow. These sessions will complement, without duplicating,
sessions scheduled for the AOFAS Annual Meeting.
In addition, the program will allow time for relevant non-CME
industry-presented satellite symposia between didactic CME
sessions.
