Default Diabetic Limb Salvage - Online presentations and surgical cases

Podiatry Arena members do not see these ads
Dear All

An absolute *MUST* for anyone involved in diabetic foot care are the online video presentations avilable from the recent 2007 Diabetic Limb Slavage conference at Georgetown University Hospital.

Wonderful quality audio/powerpoint presentations, and live surgical cases (eg percutaneus TAL) make this this cheapest and best quality continuing education I have seen for a long time.

Brilliant!:)
