Georgetown Diabetic Limb Salvage Symposium a Rousing Success, Worldwide

Nearly 1,000 people from 24 countries worked together to improve diabetic patient care at the MedStar Georgetown Diabetic Limb Salvage Conference held Thursday through Saturday in Washington, DC. New features of this year’s DLS Conference included a gloves-on cadaver workshop, expanded live cases from MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, and concurrent specialty tracks with the latest updates in biosurgery, surgery, and hospital administration.

The nature of the conference isn’t just about teamwork at an attendee-level, but at a management-level, too. In addition to Dr. Attinger, conference co-chairs include renowned leaders John S. Steinberg, DPM; Cameron M. Akbari, MD, MBA; and David H. Deaton, MD. “Evidence-based medicine gives us the current and most effective tools to save limbs and lives,” Steinberg said. “This meeting gives every member of the limb salvage team the education on how to use these tools.”
