32nd Annual Baltimore Limb Deformity Course

Baltimore

Location

200 International Drive, Baltimore, MD 21202

Description

This course has been the standard in teaching lower extremity alignment for the last 31 years. It is intended for orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, and allied health professionals who treat lower extremity deformities.

The course features lectures, deformity planning sessions, innovative apps, interactive participant case presentations, and an internationally renowned faculty. We will introduce basic and advanced limb reconstruction concepts including limb alignment, limb lengthening, corrective osteotomies, and internal and external fixation.

The 2021 Hybrid Course was attended by 190 physicians from 14 foreign countries and 32 U.S. states.

Your safety is our priority: When you register for the Course(s), it is with the understanding that the program will meet in-person only if it is safe to do so, and with participants adhering to any applicable safety measures at that time, such as vaccination requirements, mandatory face coverings, temperature checks, and social distancing. We will comply with all applicable recommendations from Baltimore City, the State of Maryland, Four Seasons Baltimore Hotel, and our Hospital, to provide an environment as safe as possible. We ask all those attending to share in the responsibility. If requested, all participants are expected to sign a Course Code of Conduct form one week prior to arrival, confirming that they will abide by all designated COVID-19 Safety Protocols. If we are unable to hold our face-to-face courses in late August, we will refund 100% of your registration payment and migrate to a virtual event. Please visit www.DeformityCourse.com for relevant updates and news.

Attire: Business casual for meeting and resort casual for reception.
