2012 Delhi Conference

The Parekh Indo-US Foot and Ankle Surgery Meeting is presented by the Parekh Family Foundation.  The aim of this course is to disseminate and share techniques in foot and ankle surgery with surgeons from India, South Asia, and the United States.  The first two annual meetings were enormous successes.  For 2012, we will continue the tradition with live surgeries and technique videos, as well as workshops and lectures.

The 3rd annual meeting will be held on:

January 20, 21, and 22, 2012 in Delhi, India

Location

The course will take place at Max Hospital in Delhi.  Faculty from both the US and India will participate in the teaching during the workshops and the didactic sessions.  This will provide attendees and registrants with a unique perspective on foot and ankle pathologies.
