12th EFAS International Congress

Primary tabs

The 12th EFAS INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS is a platform for professionals of all disciplines dealing with foot and ankle surgery and research to interact with each other for exchange of expertise and potential collaboration both in academia and in healthcare. Its theme State of the Art Foot and Ankle Surgery serving to share the latest scientific and clinical findings presented by international researchers and clinicians to the foot and ankle biomechanics and surgical community. The most recent development in this filed will be displayed, as will be enlightened surgical techniques with sharp videos, efficient conservative treatments, and most recent imaging modalities.

This year EFAS has invited two established international scientific foot and ankle societies, SFAS (Swiss Foot and Ankle Society) and KFAS (Korean Foot and Ankle Society) to share their knowledge with this vibrant community of surgeons, researchers and partners interested in all aspects of the foot and ankle pathologies and treatments. We hope to encourage a multi-disciplinary exchange of ideas amongst professionals from all professional backgrounds: surgeons, medical doctors, scientists, physical therapists, orthosis and shoemakers, and industry.
