I cannot recommend Dr. Paley’s congenital limb course enough. Dr. Paley’s technique publications are some of the best available (especially the figures) but there is so much to be gained by speaking directly with Dr. Paley and Dr. Shannon during the lectures and during the procedures. Watching them perform the procedure in real time and asking questions is better than any pre-recorded video. After attending the course I performed my first SUPERhip and X-UNION procedures and both have done incredibly well. Dr. Paley and Dr. Shannon have continued to be great mentors after the course and have helped guide me in the follow-up after these complex surgeries.

I've had some time to digest and go through the notes I took on the congenital deficiencies tutorial and I wanted to send you a message to say thank you again for running this course. Clearly opening your theatre to a room full of people, when you're operating on some of the most complex conditions is not something most people would take lightly. The week was excellent, not only to see the practical application of the procedures you've published on, but also the collegiate learning from speaking to the candidates from around the world. Really found the process stimulating and hope to be able to apply the concepts we've covered in my practice in the UK.

Excellent course! Dr. Paley and his team showed us the biggest experience, explaining many challenges, classifications, and techniques for each malformation! Club Hand, Hips, Knees, and ankles problems! Excellent!
