The Madrid Foot and Ankle Course is a new initiative bringing together two world experts in their field Niek van Dijk and Mariano de Prado. During the two day course they will present a unique combination of the strengths of Ankle Arthroscopy and Minimal Invasive Surgery in a mix of live surgical demonstrations, lectures, case discussions, tips and tricks. Both techniques have their place in the spectrum of surgical solutions in ankle and hindfoot problems and both have their specific application and indication. Niek van Dijk and Mariano de Prado share the same vision “WHY to do it is as important as HOW to do it”.
The 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. The course will be hosted by professor Francisco Forriol, the head of the anatomy department of CEU university in Madrid. Professor Forriol is ex-president of SECOT and has international reputation for his research works. An international faculty will moderate the sessions and take part in the discussions and case report sessions. The Madrid Foot and Ankle Course is organized in cooperation between the Amsterdam Foot and Ankle Course ‘on tour’ and Ripoll, de Prado & van Dijk Clinic in Madrid.
