Promote the Development of Foot and Ankle Surgery

EFAS, the European Society for Foot and Ankle Surgery was founded in 1998. 

The aims of the society are to promote the development of foot and ankle surgery and to advance education, study and research in this specialty. 

EFAS will meet its goal of advancement of the science and education in foot and ankle pathology, conservative and surgical treatment, offering practising physicians, residents and fellows instructional courses, seminars and symposia, international congresses as well as close collaboration and team learning programs to other medical and selected paramedical disciplines.

We have come a long way from where we started and today, EFAS represents 28 national societies and around 6 000 surgeons in Europe. Learn more about the EFAS history here.
