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

Techniques in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery

Orthopedic surgeons who specialize in hand and upper extremity surgery can become familiarized with the latest techniques at the educational conferences provided by FORE, the Foundation for Orthopedic Research and Education. We offer a number of hand and upper extremity conferences, including Current Solutions in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery, Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery and an Annual Shoulder Course, that focus on arthroplasty, reconstruction, fracture care and other similar topics.

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, laparoscopic 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, participating in surgical workshops and cadaver labs in addition to traditional discussions and presentations. Each conference is uniquely designed to highlight different tactics and techniques, such as dorsal distraction plating, external fixation and functional muscle transfer. Topics are specifically chosen by our esteemed faculty of surgeons, chiefs of medicine, rehabilitation therapists, device development professionals and other key innovators in the field.

Our conferences are open to orthopedic surgeons and physicians, as well as surgical assistants, fellows and residents, nurse practitioners and other healthcare professionals whose scope of practice includes hand and upper extremity surgery.
