The international conference drew Orthopedic and Podiatric Surgeons from all over the United States and Europe and was sponsored by the Ohio Foot and Ankle Medical Foundation.
During the two-day conference, Dr. Arp attended 15 hours of sessions on the topics of current concepts in forefoot, midfoot, rearfoot surgery, ankle injuries and fractures, advancements in cartilage repair, ankle fusion and replacement, He also attended a hands-on skills lab focusing on forefoot and subtalar implants, as well as forefoot, midfoot, and hindfoot and ankle plating.
“The inter-disciplinary approach of this conference was so informative and allowed a refreshing exchange of ideas between orthopedic and podiatric surgeons.,” said Arp. “The innovations being made in the areas of biologics and AI modelilzation are going to revolutionize foot and ankle surgery and it is very exciting to be on the cusp of such advances.”
