This event was designed to introduce students to the various modalities a podiatric surgeon has when treating patients. The event was sponsored by Stryker who provided the equipment and pizzas. Drs. Razzante and Clougherty gave a brief lecture on external fixation uses and techniques in the classroom.

 

Afterwards, we moved to the surgical skills lab for a hands-on workshop to practice putting on ring fixators, delta frames, pin-to-bar, and mini-rails. Students were able to gain hands-on experience with these devices to get a better understanding of how these devices are used for patients. There were St. Vincent residents, doctors, and Stryker reps there to assist and provide demonstrations for the students. Approx 50 people attended.
