Radisson Blu, Nice, France
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons and senior Specialist Registrars wishing to extend their understanding of foot conditions and develop a balanced view of treatment techniques from around the world.
What are its aims?
The symposium will be focusing on the philosophy of foot surgery, techniques and implants. Its aim is to stimulate global discussion on:
The causes of foot deformity?
Why we practice a particular technique over another?
How are these techniques optimised?
What soft tissue procedures have to offer?
Focused talks, discussion groups, cadaver workshops
This will be achieved by short, focused instructive talks to clarify the knowledge available. Round table case discussions to explore the concepts in greater detail. Sessions on anatomical specimens to put into practice the techniques learned. To accommodate our international guests, sessions will be simultaneously translated in English, French and German.
