Join us for the 8th Annual Seattle Lower Extremity Surgery Symposium—SLESS offers continuing medical education on surgical techniques for lower extremity trauma and reconstruction. SLESS is a 3-1/2-day course, featuring 2-1/2 days of didactic lectures (Wednesday [starting at noon] - Friday) held at the Cedarbrook Lodge, 5 minutes from SeaTac airport and one day (Saturday) of cadaveric skills sessions held at nearby St Anne’s Hospital 5 minutes’ drive from the hotel. Learn from a faculty of leading (MD and DPM) lower extremity surgeons.

This very popular course provides surgical exposure and hands-on training in external fixation, total ankle replacement techniques, Charcot Reconstruction, muscle flap techniques and revisional nerve surgery.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will have an understanding of:

  • Total ankle replacement, revision, and fusion
  • Deformity correction using hexapod
  • Charcot reconstruction with beaming rods, plating and external fixation
  • TC/TTC fusion techniques with intramedullary nails
  • Muscle flap techniques for soleus, gastrocnemius, peroneus brevis flaps and others
  • Muscle flap stabilization with external fixation
  • General nerve revision techniques for the lower extremity

Please note that unlike past years, the conference will begin at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, March 20th.
