Swiss Foot and Ankle Society SFAS
The beginnings of the Swiss Society of Surgery and Medicine of the foot. From P. Scholder, Lausanne.
Since 1929 there were in Switzerland, some members of the International Society for Orthopedics, which dealt in detail with the topics discussed at the congresses.
In July 1942 finally they founded the Free Association of Swiss orthopedic surgeon, later Swiss Society for Orthopaedics (SGO).
So would niemend believe that the Swiss Society of Surgery and Medicine of the foot has a similar history, given the prior existence of the International College for Foot Medicine and Surgery (CIP), the Jean Lelièvre founded in 1960th However, that is not the facts and the College would attach to a role that has never played in our country.
