The British Limb Reconstruction Society (BLRS) was founded in 1997 with the object of bringing together surgeons and allied professionals involved in the management of congenital and acquired deformities of the upper and lower limbs, reconstruction of post-traumatic limb defects and limb equalisation techniques. The Society aims to advance education and research in the field of limb reconstruction and holds regular scientific meetings and training courses. The Society is affiliated with the British Orthopaedic Association and with the International ASAMI (Association for the Study and Application of the Method of Ilizarov).
The annual BLRS meeting is being held in Liverpool in 2016.  The meeting will be hosting a combined day with the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).  The joint day aims to highlight the benefit of collaborative working between orthopaedic and plastic reconstructive surgeons.  It will boast a host of internationally recognised speakers dealing with issues of common interest e.g. open tibial fractures, infections, congenital upper limb problems and limb loss. 
The remaining 2 days will be of interest to all surgeons treating complex upper and lower limb pathology in the adult and paediatric population that may require reconstructive surgery.  The program will include tips and tricks in the management of difficult upper and lower limb pathologies.  Also, the role of 3 dimensional gait analysis in the assessment of lower limb abnormalities will be explored. 
This three day meeting promises to be informative and interesting.  It embraces and welcomes our allied professional healthcare workers without whom our jobs would be impossible.  CPD points have been applied for and expected to be granted. 
On behalf of the local organising committee, I would like to cordially invite you to our meeting and thank you for your interest.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
