Hands-on Amsterdam Foot & Ankle Course in Shanghai
From October 24 – 26, 2018, the first Amsterdam Foot & Ankle Course ‘on tour’ will take place in Shanghai. It will be a copy of the original Amsterdam Course including live surgeries and hands-on sessions. The course will be organized by leading experts Prof. Niek van Dijk in cooperation with Prof. Yinghui Hua and Prof. Shiyi Chen. The course venue will be the Huashan Hospital for Sports Medicine from the Fudan University Shanghai, equipped with a cadaver lab with excellent facilities. The program contains a mix of lectures, case discussions, tips and tricks, 3 live surgeries and for each participant a 4 hours hands-on session in the cadaver lab. The course will emphasize the strengths and possibilities of ankle arthroscopy from the perspective “WHY to do it, is as important as HOW to do it”.
The Shanghai Course is both for advanced and beginners who are interested in these new techniques and solutions. There will be ample time for exchange and discussion. Participants who only want to attend the lectures, case discussions and live surgery can make a registration for the course without hands-on.
Registration starts on February 22: www.shanghaifootandankle.com
