EPOS Paediatric Foot and Ankle Disorders Course
Thessaloniki , Greece
January 17th, 2019
Children and adolescents can suffer from a variety of congenital or acquired foot and ankle disorders leading to pain and/or deformity. The understanding of their pathophysiology and natural history is of paramount importance for proper diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Although management of paediatric foot and ankle disorders is well established, controversies still exist. Moreover, some treatment methods are technically demanding and require special education.
The European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (EPOS) organizes the EPOS Paediatric Foot and Ankle Disorders Course in order to cover this very interesting area of pediatric orthopedic surgery.
The course is aimed at Orthopaedic and Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons, Residents and Fellows who want to improve or refresh their knowledge in paediatric ankle and foot disorders.
Teaching faculties are composed of internationally recognized experts in children’s orthopedics, with special interest in foot and ankle disorders, from all over Europe.
The course includes theoretical lectures, debates, techniques, and case discussions concerning development/growth, anatomy, biomechanics, treatment and complications of congenital or acquired paediatric foot and ankle disorders.
Last but not least, the course includes a ‘Clubfoot casting post-course workshop’ to review and to apply the principles of the Ponseti’s casting technique.
We warmly invite Orthopaedic and Paediatric – Orthopaedic Surgeons, Residents and Fellows to Thessaloniki, Greece, on 10 – 12 May 2019 at The Met Hotel. We will do our outmost to meet and exceed your expectations!
