Welcome Address

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to announce the organization of the 1st Cadaveric Course "All about forefoot" which will take place on February, 16th-17th, 2024, in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The Course is organized by the Hellenic Association of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology (HAOST) 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 the forefoot surgical procedures focusing on teaching safe Foot & Ankle surgery. 

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 Course
