Besides covering all core aspects of foot & ankle surgery such as orthopaedics, trauma and reconstructive surgery including sports medicine, it also features related topics like diabetic foot care, rheumatology, orthotics and insoles, dermatology, plastic surgery, novel biomaterials, biomechanics, gait analysis, cartilage repair, and podiatric surgery and orthopaedics.

The International Editorial Board welcomes original research articles, reviews, and case reports from all countries in English or German.
