Electives in Hand Surgery, New Orleans, February 2014

Posted by Kristin Valdes OTD, OT, CHT on 09/17/2013

The Electives in Hand Surgery course is designed to help both surgeons and therapists master anatomical knowledge of common conditions from the fingertip to the shoulder. Most panels have interactions between the therapist and MD presenters so the attendee is able to get comprehensive information regarding the management of many hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder conditions. In addition to common conditions treated in the upper extremity, topics that are infrequently seen in educational forums but are clinically common will be covered, including:

Tendon anatomy and therapeutic management of tendon lacerations

Compartment syndromes and nerve injuries

Ulnar-sided wrist pain and carpal instabilities

Common conditions involving the shoulder and elbow

The course will offer concurrent programming Friday and Saturday morning, giving attendees the choice of which topic best meets their needs. Check out our program and register today!
