Baltimore Limb Deformity Course

Dr. John Herzenberg, Dr. Shawn Standard, Dr. Philip McClure, and Dr. Janet Conway teaching participants at the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course

We are excited to have reinvented the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course (BLDC) to an online, virtual BLDC in 2020. This format provided our registrants and industry partners an exciting, safe, and convenient web-based platform to learn, exchange ideas, and showcase important developments in the orthopedic subspecialty of limb lengthening deformity correction. The 2020 BLDC was an intensive, educational experience that allowed 320 attendees from 43 countries and 29 U.S. states to learn from internationally renowned surgeons.

We developed a syllabus that included over 25 hours of pre-recorded planning and deformity correction talks/workshops and hardware application videos, in addition to 7 hours of live, interactive sessions for Q&A and case discussions. Our faculty lectured on topics such as assessing limb alignment, planning deformity correction, and correcting limb deformities with internal and external devices. Basic and advanced limb reconstruction concepts and surgical procedures were also presented. The virtual course enabled surgeons to view the content on their own time and at their own pace.

We thank our corporate sponsors, faculty, Academic and Research Services Department, and volunteers for making this Course possible.

Join us in August 2021 for the 31st Annual Baltimore Limb Deformity Course! We are planning on returning to our in-person event in Baltimore, Maryland. Please continue to check this webpage for the latest information about the 2021 Course.

What Participants Are Saying About the 2020 Course

  • “Please convey also my congratulations to all the Faculty members as well as to the Scientific and Administrative staff for their exceptional performance. I took the course back in 2014 and I have to say that the online one this year really impressed me. This is why your Clinic sets the benchmark in many disciplines in Orthopaedic Surgery. The only thing that was missing were the cadaver labs and the person to person discussions.”
