One of Dr. Peter Bock’s greatest pleasures is to share his knowledge with other colleagues. As year after year, Dr. Bock also gave a talk at this year’s winter meeting of the Austrian Foot and Ankle Society. The subject of the talk this year: “Juvenile Hallux valgus – Is It the Fault of the Parents?” Dr. Bock – foot specialist at the prestigious Orthopaedic Hospital Vienna Speising – gave advice during his talk on the different factors which lead to the development of a juvenile hallux valgus deformity. Dr. Bock placed particular emphasis on the importance of choosing the right shoes for children. “Kids’ shoes should always have the right size, and should never be too small”, explained Dr. Bock. Dr. Bock would also be glad to welcome you and your questions on Hallux valgus in his office.
