Upcoming Events

 

Foot & Ankle Focus: Latest Advances in Surgical Correction of the PCFD

Wednesday, July 27
8:00 - 9:00 pm Central Time (UTC-5)

Faculty: Callum I.M. Clark, MB BChir, MSFEM(UK); Cesar de Cesar Netto, MD, PhD; Jonathan T. Deland, MD; Scott J. Ellis, MD


In this discussion, expert faculty will review surgical techniques to correct progressive collapsing foot deformity (PCFD), including deltoid and spring ligament reconstruction techniques and FHL tendon transfer for the medial column. The webinar will also cover new literature and the use of weightbearing CT to understand when an isolated subtalar fusion is indicated in treating the flexible collapsing flatfoot. In addition, faculty will discuss the importance of stabilizing the first ray and explain how to perform a plantar flexion TMT fusion with a wedge successfully to avoid other concomitant hindfoot procedures.


At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe the technique and use of an isolated subtalar fusion with a medializing calcaneal osteotomy in the treatment of the flexible, collapsing flatfoot

  • Describe the technique and use of the "Lapicotton" procedure in the treatment of the flexible, collapsing flatfoot

  • Describe deltoid reconstruction and spring ligament reconstruction techniques

  • Describe FHL tendon transfer for the medial column

Foot & Ankle Focus: Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery for the Hindfoot and Ankle

Wednesday, August 17
8:00 - 9:00 pm Central Time (UTC-5)

Moderator: Christopher P. Miller, MD
Faculty: Miki Dalmau Pastor, PhD; Lorena Bejarano-Pineda, MD; Steven K. Neufeld, MD; Joel Vernois, MD


Minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery (MIS) is increasingly popular. In the past four years, the pace of adoption has been increasing rapidly throughout North America. Many surgeons are familiar with the basic techniques such as cheilectomies, bunion correction, and calcaneal osteotomies. This webinar will review advanced MIS techniques to correct mid and hindfoot conditions such as Charcot deformities and cavus foot, as well as ankle arthritis and deformities. We will also review the relevant surgical anatomy that is critical for performing MIS surgery. Join us for an international panel discussion with surgeons and experts from France, Spain, and the United States.


At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Review critical anatomy

  • Understand MIS treatment options for Charcot arthropathy

  • Identify MIS treatment options for hindfoot and ankle deformity
