On November 17-18, 2017, global leaders in the field of orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery recently gathered in Pittsburgh at UPMC for the International Consensus Meeting on Cartilage Repair of the Ankle.

The first-of-its-kind meeting was the result of a year-long collaboration among national and international experts to develop a consensus on key focus areas like the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for common, yet complex injury to the ankle.

Local co-hosts for the meeting included MaCalus V. Hogan, MD, vice chairman of education and division chief of foot and ankle surgery in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UPMC; and Christopher D. Murawski from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

The meeting included over 100 orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, radiologists and scientists from 26 countries.
