Incorporate the Latest Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery into Your Orthopaedic Practice

Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity SurgeryTechniques in hand and upper extremity surgery are constantly changing, leading to better outcomes and lower complication rates.

Staying up to date, however, requires a concerted effort. If you practice hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder surgery on a regular basis and would like to learn more about the latest surgical approaches, you can attend one of the orthopaedic conferences provided by FORE – the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education.

For example, orthopaedic healthcare professionals who would like to specifically focus on upper extremity surgery and rehabilitation can choose Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery, the Tampa Shoulder Course, or Critical Concepts in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery, each of which highlights the most relevant topics in the field.

Our hand and upper extremity courses  are designed to help participants:

  • More-effectively diagnose fractures, ligament tears, and other conditions
  • Evaluate each patient’s specific needs and determine which treatments – conservative or surgical – are most appropriate
  • Implement the newest and most-effective surgical techniques and rehabilitation strategies
  • Work hand-in-hand with non-operative professionals to develop and monitor the progress of each patient’s comprehensive treatment plan

In addition, FORE is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians and approved by the Board of Certification to provide continuing education for athletic trainers.
