John Steinberg, Assistant Professor in Georgetown University’s Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the University of Arizona’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) were two featured guests at the 96th American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress in Washington, DC this week. “It is terrific seeing podiatric surgery’s integration into the team approach to care of our highest risk patients”, noted Dr. Armstrong. “I think people like Dr. Steinberg represent role models for all surgeons– podiatric, plastic, vascular and otherwise.” In two separate sessions held this week, Steinberg and Armstrong reported both data and clinical pearls related to reconstruction, amputation prevention and wound healing. With some 12000 surgeons and researchers in attendance, the American College of Surgeons symposium is the largest such meeting of its kind in the world.
