This course is designed for orthopedic and plastic surgeons with a significant hand practice and covers the spectrum of disorders of the wrist and distal radioulnar joint. The format will be case-oriented, covering topics in bony and soft tissue trauma, degenerative disease, and inflammatory arthritis, to name a few. Videotaped surgery clips and cadaveric surgical dissection will be used to demonstrate complicated surgical procedures. Case examples will be presented prior to each didactic session, followed by open discussion. Breakout sessions, led by recognized experts in the field, will provide more in-depth coverage of specific wrist topics and provide updates on advances in arthroscopy and arthroplasty. A strong emphasis will be placed on surgical technique. Registrants are encouraged to bring their own cases to discuss with the faculty: special times for these exchanges will be arranged.
Specifically Mike will be talking on scaphoid fractures in athletes , the surgical approach to scaphoid fractures and problems with the pisiform bone.
