4th Heidelberg Deformity-Day
Orthopaedic University Hospital Heidelberg
Schlierbacher Landstr. 200a 69118 Heidelberg Germany
Heidelberg, Germany
 After three successful meetings we cordially invite you to attend and participate the Heidelberg Deformity Day IV, which will take place in Heidelberg, Germany on September 30th and October 1st, 2011.

This year the main focus of D-Day lies on the management and the strategies for avoidance of complications and pitfalls of foot and ankle surgery. Again we prepared an interesting programme which will be enriched by our distinguished faculty from different countries all over the world. You will experience a voyage through the most important topics of paediatric and adult foot surgery. The knowledge of complications and their management is of major importance for a successful treatment of foot and ankle deformities.

The feedback of the past meetings encouraged us to proceed with our concept to provide an excellent platform for discussions and to share the knowledge and experiences of you and the faculty. Therefore, we kindly invite you to bring your cases (clinical pictures, x-rays, videos) to discuss them during the cases of the audience sessions. Feel free to contact us before the meeting for an easy incorporation in the programme. Furthermore, this year's programme will focus more on the discussion with the audience.

Of course, besides the regular presentations, we hold on our concept of panel discussions, audio-response sessions and cases of the audience sessions for a programme which is rich in variety. On Friday subsequent to the scientific programme we cordially invite you to our get-together Bavarian party.

We look forward to meeting you in Heidelberg and to sharing our experiences with you.
