Basic course: This course covers the main topics and basic surgical techniques in foot and ankle such as Hallux Valgus surgery, Hallux rigidus surgery, Ankle instability, Metatarsalgia, Hindfoot arthrodesis. Each topic starts with a short theorical presentation, followed by a demonstration from the faculty and ends with 40 minutes of practical work on foot foot by participants.
Advanced course: This course covers more advanced topics, such as arthroscopic techniques and sport lesions in foot an ankle, degenerative articular lesions in foot and ankle, flat foot and DTP and complications of this pathology, Ankle arthroplasty and their complications.
