Dear friends,
It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the first Meir Medical Center International Foot and Ankle conference.
The meeting will cover the most cutting-edge subjects in foot and ankle surgery. For that purpose, we have invited distinguished friends from abroad who will share with us their experience.
The program is loaded with interesting topics, some of which are controversial.
