The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) is thrilled to share with you a first-of-its kind article entitled, “A Consensus Statement on The Surgical Treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease.” Published in the esteemed journal Foot and Ankle International, this milestone publication delineates the best surgical practices for people with foot deformation due to CMT.

The article is the product of an exceptional one-day meeting fully sponsored by the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association and attended by thirteen experienced board-certified orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons and a neurologist specializing in CMT disease.

Spearheaded by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Glenn Pfeffer and his team at Cedars-Sinai, this remarkable group of surgeons defined consensus terminology, agreed upon standardized templates for history and physical examination and recommended a comprehensive approach to CMT foot surgery.
