Precision in Practice: Perfecting Extremity Procedures with Acumed

June 8

Course Overview

The Precision in Practice course is the exclusive Acumed course of the year! This unique two-track program is designed to address the daily challenges surgeons face either in the Hand & Wrist, or in the Foot & Ankle. The one-day course will be split into two simultaneous tracks: one focusing on Hand and Wrist, and the other focusing on Foot and Ankle. Surgeons will choose which track they attend based upon their specialty and interests. Additionally, all the participants will come together for special sessions that are of interest and relevance to all attendees.

The program will include in-depth case discussions, explore case controversies in emerging treatment modalities, and provide attendees with the opportunity for hands-on cadaveric practice in our exciting Mobile Labs. Acumed has hand-picked an expert faculty of surgeons at the forefront of extremity treatment who will deliver advanced instruction on current trends, controversies, health care economics, and emerging solutions in extremity care.
