2013 Pune Mid-Year Conference

The Parekh Mid-Year Indo-US Foot and Ankle Surgery Meeting is presented by the Parekh Family Foundation.  Given the success of the Annual January Meeting, there has been a request to create a mid-year meeting to complement the content of the annual course. The Mid-Year meeting is aimed at delivering content in trauma of the foot and ankle, and commonly seen pathologies. This will be a two-day meeting. There will be technique videos, workshops, and lectures.
