Lower Limb Deformity Correction Fellowships

Train with Dr. Rodriguez at the Chicago Foot & Ankle Deformity Correction Center in Chicago. You will be able to observe surgery, conduct workshops, and participate in a busy practice that specializes in complex lower limb surgical reconstructions such as charcot joints, equinus deformity, fibular hemimelia, post-traumatic injuries, multiplanar corrections, muscle flaps and peripheral nerve techniques. Dr. Rodriguez will provide you individualized attention as you discuss the principles and techniques of deformity correction.
