South African Foot Surgeons’ Association

SAFSA home-01

The South African Foot Surgeons’ Association (SAFSA) is a society of South African orthopaedic surgeons with a special interest in the medical and surgical management of foot and ankle pathologies. We have quarterly meetings for presentations, topic discussions and difficult case presentations. SAFSA organises a foot and ankle congress biennially, with international guest speakers. A foot and ankle instructional course is presented at every third SAOA congress by the society. The association promotes research and education in foot and ankle surgery.

From the foot of the bed:


2016 has flown by and is coming to an end. This has been a very successful year for SAFSA. The year started with COMOC 2016 held in Cape Town. The foot and ankle symposium was well attended with great international guests. SAFSA then presented a foot and ankle trauma symposium at the annual SAOA congress in Skukuza. This was presented by a local faculty and was very well received, showing that we are without a doubt on par with the rest of the world. A great accomplishment by one of our members was the election of SAFSA past president Dr A. van Zyl as president of the SAOA. This was a proud moment for all of us. Next year we will be having our biennial SAFSA congress in Johannesburg. We have four great international speakers coming with a great program planned. SAFSA wishes you and your families a happy and safe holiday, and may 2017 be filled with joy and success.
