16th Annual Desert Foot Conference Provides Complete Educational Experience

About the Conference

The 16th Annual Desert Foot Conference Co-Chaired by Drs Charles Andersen, Lawrence Lavery, Lee Rogers, Tomas Serena, and Anthony Tickner led an esteemed faculty of 31 key opinion leaders over four days of knowledge sharing and learning. The many hundreds of Desert Foot attendees were exposed to evidence-based and best practices to improve limb salvage, advanced wound care techniques and treat surgical and medical disorders of the lower limb. The 16 rotating hands-on-workshops provided attendees with a more complete educational experience than lectures alone.
