Cameron Eilts, DPM of Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine will teach a Cadaver Surgical Skills Course in Atlanta, Georgia from October 27th-30th. National and international surgeons will attend the Podiatry Institute workshop to learn advanced surgical techniques on the foot and ankle.
During the training course, physicians will perform surgical cases during an in-depth, hands-on lab using cadavers and bone models. Procedures range from 5th digit arthroplasties to complex rearfoot fusions. Surgical topics will also be discussed throughout the course, whose purpose is to increase comfort of physicians performing podiatric surgical procedures, improve skills through live surgical observation as well as hands-on participation with cadaver limbs and learn new surgical techniques.
