AOFAS/BOFAS: The Use of Biologics in Foot and Ankle Surgery

Moderators: Sheldon S. Lin, MD, and Rick Brown, MD
Faculty: Samuel B. Adams, Jr., MD, James D. Calder, MD, MBBS, FFSEM, FRCS(Tr&Orth), PhD, Rod Jaques, MD

This is the first in a brand new series of webinars involving a unique collaboration between the American and British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Societies. Each interactive webinar seeks to challenge the status quo around complex or topical issues in our surgical discipline. We hear the differing viewpoints of respected experts from both sides of the Atlantic and both sides of the argument, brought to life through case discussion and jointly moderated Q&A sessions. This time the question is whether we should be using Biologics in our surgical practices.

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

  • Understand the mechanism of action and rationale behind the common modern Biologics
  • Appreciate the evidence base and controversies relating to the use of Biologics in foot and ankle surgery
  • Learn the practical applications of these surgical adjuncts
