The Multidisciplinary & Surgical Management of Charcot Foot (2017)

June 29th and 30th . 2017

The Kia Oval, London.

A two-day focused symposium on the Multidisciplinary & Surgical Management of the Charcot Foot organised by the Kings Diabetes Foot Team. We hope this event will provide a unique platform for discussing the current challenges, stimulate discussion and offer insight into new cutting edge technique in managing the Charcot foot.

We are supported by Diabetes UK and the British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society. The symposium will be hosted at the historic Oval Cricket Ground, home of the first ever test cricket match, located within easy walking distance of Oval and Vauxhall Underground stations.

Our faculty will consist of an internationally renowned panel of speakers ‑ all of whom are experts in the field of Diabetic Foot Medicine and Surgery. Further details to follow. We are in the process of application for CPD points.

The programme is aimed at orthopaedic surgeons, diabetologists, vascular surgeons, podiatrists, diabetes specialist nurses, CCG clinical leads, general practitioners and all members of diabetes foot networks or diabetes clinical networks.

CPD points are being applied from the Royal College of Surgeons, College of Podiatry and the Royal College of Physicians. Places are limited due to capacity and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. A full agenda and further details will be uploaded onto this site around a month before the event.
