Event description

Description

At the Bobby Menges Memorial HSS Limb Deformity Course, experts in alignment, acute coronal plane deformity correction, hexapod assisted deformity correction, and internal lengthening compression nail assisted deformity correction will use didactics, case presentations and discussions, and hands-on sawbones labs to share their knowledge of available techniques.

Following this program, participants will be able to diagnose various foot and ankle conditions, such as Charcot, failed pilon fracture, post-traumatic arthritis, and ankle deformity. They will also diagnose and incorporate into practice the appropriate surgical treatment for these conditions.

Hands-on sawbones labs include:

  • ankle distraction/equinus

  • tibia internal lengthening nail

  • hexapod supramalleolar osteotomy with distal tibia malunion


Please see detailed agenda below.
