Sports Foot & Ankle 2015 was the third conference of its kind in the successful Sports Surgery series organised by Warwick Orthopaedics. Sports Surgery Conferences are international events and are CPD-approved. They are directed at Surgeons, Sports Physicians, Physiotherapists and Podiatrists who treat young patients with sports-related foot and ankle injuries. The 2015 Conference addressed current and future challenges for the athlete.

Topics and Debates

Delegates enjoyed a mix of keynote lectures, presentations, debate and informal discussions with a wealth of distinguished speakers from the UK and abroad.

There were opportunities to take part in workshops and discussion groups throughout the conference.

Delegates had the opportunity to enjoy a conference dinner on the first evening and, as this was a residential course, they also had a rare opportunity to network with other delegates and faculty in an informal setting.
