Dear Sir/Madam, dear Colleagues,
Following a two-year disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted to invite you to the 4th edition of the international C-Nail Symposium, that will take place on 2nd & 3rd June 2022 in Magdeburg in Germany at the Dorint-Hotel Herrenkrug. In 2017, trauma surgeons from the Czech Republic and Germany met in Magdeburg for the first time, to exchange experiences about the minimally invasive calcaneal implant – the C-NAIL, followed by two editions of the conference in 2018 and 2019.
From the very beginning, Prof. Zwipp, as an internationally recognized foot surgeon, has been involved in these conferences as the main supporter and contributor. We are very pleased that, in addition to Prof. Zwipp, we succeeded to recruit also other international experts, who were the pioneers and designers of C-Nail systems, Prof. Rammelt, Dr. Pompach and Dr. Amlang, and will be sharing with us their valuable experience during their presentations in this year.
The international C-Nail Symposium, speakers from England, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Germany will report on their experiences in calcaneal surgery in four sessions. Also, numerous explicit lectures will take place with open questions & answers section, when special indications will be discussed. Furthermore, a workshop using artificial bone as well as a video session with a discussion will complete this remarkable program.
I am very pleased to be your host in Magdeburg and look forward to introducing you to the numerous high-profile speakers from Germany and abroad.
Priv-Doz. Dr. med. habil. Fred Draijer
