Learn the Newest Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at an Orthopaedic Course Provided by FORE

Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery

Orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in hand and upper extremity surgery can familiarize themselves with the latest techniques at the educational conferences provided by FORE, the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education.

We offer several conferences that address issues in hand and upper extremity surgery, including Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery, Critical Concepts in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery, and the Tampa Shoulder Course.

Our hand and upper extremity conferences equip surgeons to:

  • Evaluate surgical and non-surgical treatment options and determine when surgical intervention is indicated
  • Implement the latest techniques in minimally invasive surgery and microsurgery
  • Adapt surgical treatment protocols for pediatric and geriatric patients
  • Assess the potential complications of surgical intervention and create strategies for reducing complication rates

At select conferences, surgeons can put the latest surgical techniques into practice by  participating in hands-on bioskills labs.

Each conference is uniquely designed to highlight different techniques and technologies, such as dorsal distraction plating, external fixation, and functional muscle transfer. Topics are specifically chosen by our esteemed faculty of practitioners, educators, and innovators in the field.
