Team approach to total foot and ankle care
The Complete Foot Care Course, presented every two years, is a multi-disciplinary course that emphasizes the non-surgical team approach to foot and ankle care.
In didactic sessions, faculty - orthopaedic surgeons, nurses, and pedorthists, plus a physical therapist, endocrinologist and radiologist - will address the basics of the foot and ankle evaluation and relevant biomechanics. Breakout sessions address aspects of foot and ankle care relevant to each participant's specific practice. Attendees will rotate through each session. Case presentations are used to demonstrate treatment principles and facilitate open discussion.
