We woud like to share with you the article published in the Foot and Ankle International magazine by Dr. Michael Pinzur, editor of the magazine and world reference in the treatment of Charcot foot, although he put us as authors by deference. This article describes the training we did in Loyola’s Hospital in 2015, in the beautiful city of Chicago, and how this impacted our practice and our patients. The article is obviously in English, so I attach a translation of it. “Those of us who live in the United States rarely stop to think how easy it is for us to access new medical knowledge or technical skills. Our professional societies offer a myriad of courses to complement educational offerings at annual educational meetings. If we want to acquire a new skill, we have easy access to the AAOS Learning Center and a large number of hands-on learning centers sponsored by educational institutions and our industry colleagues. Orthopedic appliance manufacturers offer industry-sponsored hands-on courses or sponsor a visit to observe an expert. What happens when you live outside the United States and do not have access to some of these new technologies? The ability of foreign physicians to obtain training grants in the United States is limited by many academic medical centers. Citing medical liability, many centers restrict postgraduate training only to observation. I have never appreciated

In mid-February I had the opportunity to visit the Hannover Medical School Orthopedic Clinic in Germany.   Together with doctors Christian Plaaß and Christina Stukenborg-Colsman we spent a very entertaining day in the OR doing forefoot surgery, supramalleolar osteotomies and calcaneum osteotomies.   Very interesting to see how other centers work and to compare it with the way we do things. You never stop learning and I’m lucky enough to learn from a lot of valuable people in a lot of places. Captura de pantalla 2017-02-25 a las 21.47.23

This March 23 will be participating in the days of circular fixation in Barcelona. Topics such as the use of this technique in traumatic pathology and in diabetic foot injuries will be discussed. We hope to share our experience with this system that we have implemented in our center for over a year. In addition we will have the presence of the specialists standing at the Hospital Sant Pau, who will tell us their vision of this technique that they use very frequently in traumatic injuries. We are sure it will be a very rewarding day for all.
