Welcome Address

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to announce the organization of the Advanced cadaveric course on soft tissue reconstruction and tendon transfers of Foot and Ankle which will take place on June, 14th-15th, 2024, in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The Course is organized by the Scientific Society of Primary Health Care, in cooperation with the Balkan Foot and Ankle Society (BAFAS).

In recent years we witnessed a significant increase of interest among orthopaedic surgeons in Foot and Ankle surgery and that’s why many worldwide experts have been invited to share with us their knowledge and experience. The topics that will be presented in the Course will cover a great range of surgical procedures on the soft tissues of the Foot and Ankle.

The theoretical part of the Course will be held at the Teloglion Fine Arts Foundation while the educational program on fresh frozen cadaveric specimens will take place at the Laboratory of Anatomy and Surgical Anatomy of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

As hosts and organizers we shall spare no effort in making your participation scientifically rewarding and as meaningful as possible. We hope in your active participation.

Sincerely yours,

The Presidents of the Organizing Committee
