Event Overview
Welcome message:

This program will address complex injuries of the wrist and hand. The program will encompass physical exam, imaging, basic science, surgical and non-surgical option, and rehabilitation. Current research and practices will be discussed that will include: basic science and clinical applications; diagnostic imaging modalities; algorithms for treatment including surgical and non-surgical; and the occupational and/or physical therapy in treating these disorders. Additionally, issues addressing patient safety and determining what is best suited for the patient in the decision-making process will be discussed. Potential risks and benefits will be brought forward along with alternatives, such as non-operative and operative interventions as well as specific improvements and expectations.
