Goals and Objectives
Utilizing both didactic presentations and surgical simulations in a cadaveric model the participant will:
1) Understand the indications, techniques, anatomical implications and the necessary techniques required to perform minimally invasive forefoot surgery.
2) Understand the anatomy and indications, identify correct instrumentation and comprehend the correct technique required to utilize the instrument to perform neural decompression in the management of intermetatarsal neuromas.
3) Understand the different methods for the management Brachymetatarsia including indications and limitations of specific procedures. Demonstrate steps required in the correct application of a minirail external fixator to accomplish distraction osteogenesis for the management of brachymetatarsia.
4) Understand the alternative approaches to the management of hallux limitus/rigidus. Define the role that hemi implants have in the management of the deformity. Identify specific anatomical considerations important to implant placement and postoperative function. Compare and contrast implant arthroplasty, including advantages and disadvantages, to other surgical options.
5) Understand proper patient selection for the use of a subtalar joint implant/arthroeresis procedure. Delineate the advantages and disadvantages of common subtalar joint implants. Identify the important anatomical structures associated with implantation of a subtalar joint implant.
