Join us for the 6th Annual Seattle Lower Extremity Surgery Symposium—SLESS offers continuing medical education on surgical techniques for lower extremity trauma and reconstruction. SLESS is a 3-day course, featuring two days of didactic lectures held at the Cedarbrook Lodge, 5 minutes from SeaTac airport and one day of cadaveric skills sessions held at nearby St Anne Hospital, 15 minutes 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 (including hexapod), total ankle replacement techniques, Charcot reconstruction, muscle flap techniques and revisional nerve surgery.
