Course Description

This program will demonstrate new techniques and instrumentation for shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand reconstruction and provide a valuable international forum for global scientific exchange among surgeons and researchers who are interested in upper extremity biomechanics and its clinical applications.

Target Audience

This course is designed for practicing orthopaedic surgeons, hand and upper extremity, plastic surgeons, orthopaedic surgery residents/fellows, physician assistants, occupational therapists, physical therapists, registered nurses, orthopaedic surgery assistants, scrub technologists, surgical assistants, orthopaedic technicians, scientists/engineers (biomechanics of the hand/wrist).

Course Objectives

  • Compare and contrast the spectrum of techniques currently available for upper extremity reconstruction
  • Define alternative techniques for reconstruction of hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder
  • Discuss the role of the management of acute and chronic pathology and derangement of the structures of the upper limb using traditional as well as new reparative and reconstructive techniques.
  • Discuss the role of the acute prosthetic replacement management of upper extremity problems
  • Identify and review the latest research on hand and upper extremity biomechanics from around the globe
