Lectures Cadaver sessions
The Amsterdam Foot & Ankle Course was founded in 2000. Since then professionals from all over the world have participated. The annual courses focus on Minimal Invasive Surgery of the Hindfoot and Ankle, featuring Cadaver Lab Sessions, Lectures, Interactive Computer Courses, Live Surgery, a Live Clinical Demonstration, an Ankle Brace Workshop and a Fireside Quiz. Lectures are interactive and supported by a Wireless Interactive Voting System. The Hands-on Sessions in the Cadaver Lab present the latest techniques in Minimal Invasive Foot and Ankle Surgery. There is a national and international faculty. The course has a limited number of participants, allowing each participant ample opportunity to practice during the Cadaver Lab sessions and to interact with the faculty.
The Amsterdam Foot & Ankle Course is approved by the Dutch Orthopaedic Association with 14 accreditation points.
The International Society for Arthroscopy, Knee surgery, and Orthopaedic Sports medicine (ISAKOS), the European Society of Sports traumatology Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) and the UEMS (Continuous Medical Education) provide patronage for the 13th Amsterdam Foot & Ankle Course. For information on the next ESSKA Congress in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 14-17 May 2014, please visit the ESSKA website.
The course is exquisitely catered with Italian food, prepared on site by our Italian chef. The Thursday night program is localized in the old centre of Amsterdam, where dinner will be served in the famous Weigh House, after which a short walk through the historic old centre of Amsterdam will bring you back to your hotel.
We hope our course will grant you an unforgettable experience!
