2015 Bangalore Conference

The Parekh Indo-US Foot and Ankle Surgery Meeting is presented by the Parekh Family Foundation. The aim of this course is to disseminate and share techniques in foot and ankle surgery with surgeons from India, South Asia, and the United States. The first five annual meetings were enormous successes. For 2015, we will continue the tradition with live surgeries and technique videos, as well as workshops and lectures. However, we will be building on prior successes and add a cadaver lab and physiotherapy day.

The 6th annual meeting will be held on:

January 9, 10, and 11, 2015 in Bangalore, India

Location

The course will take place at the M S Ramaiah Hospital. Faculty from the US, UK and India will participate in the teaching during the workshops and the didactic sessions. This will provide attendees and registrants with a unique perspective on foot and ankle pathologies.
