Moderator: A. Holly Johnson, MD
Faculty: Rebecca A. Cerrato, MD; Oliver N. Schipper, MD; Christopher P. Miller, MD

In this webinar, minimally invasive experts will highlight cases in which straightforward minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and/or arthroscopic techniques allowed for better outcomes and lower complications in difficult patients at high risk for open procedures. These experts will focus on the treatment of chronic Achilles problems, neuropathic patients with forefoot pressure sores, and Charcot arthropathy.

 

At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the indications for use of the percutaneous burr to address deformity and pressure ulcers in the forefoot

  • Understand the indications for use of the percutaneous burr to address Charcot arthropathy

  • Understand the indications for use of the percutaneous burr to address insertional Achilles tendinopathy

  • Understand the indications and technique of arthroscopic surgery to address insertional Achilles teninopathy
