2013 Kolkata 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 three annual meetings were enormous successes.  For 2013, we will continue the tradition with live surgeries and technique videos, as well as workshops and lectures.

The 4th annual meeting will be held on:

January, 18, 19, and 20 2013 in Kolkata, India


The course will take place at the Columbia Asia Hospital in Kolkata.  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.
