The Foot & Ankle in Sport - Clinical, Radiographic & Surgical Concerns - PART 2

Amol Saxena, DPM

In this second of a two-part lecture, Amol Saxena, DPM and Sona Ramdath Jr, DPM give an overview on the common acute bread & butter sports medicine injuries that occur to the foot and ankle. The typical podiatrist, not immersed in sports medicine, may not have sufficient exposure to be comfortable assessing patients involved in more ballistic and explosive sports such as basketball and soccer. One should be familiar with the diagnostic and treatment options after completing this session, so that they can get the sports medicine patient back to their desired sport as quickly and safely as possible.
