AO Trauma Hand NA Internet Live Master Class Series

AO Trauma Hand North America

The AO Trauma Hand NA Master Class Series will help surgeons understand the indications, surgical technical steps, pros and cons, surgical pearls and pitfalls, and possible complications regarding certain cases and procedures. We expect learners and patients to benefit from the experiences and missteps of the masters. Each biweekly session will be conducted by eminent hand surgeons who have mastered the art of that session’s procedure(s). Most sessions will include participation by one of our hand therapy faculty who will provide perspectives on the postoperative therapeutic management of these cases. A review of literature most relevant to the session’s topic will also be included in the presentations. Sessions will occur on the first and third Thursday of each month starting in October 2021 and ending in April 2022. The penultimate Master Class will feature a session with the partner nation of the AO NA Hand Education Committee – India. The final session will culminate in an international round table, which will include several international hand surgeons, each of whom will be discussing one surgical trick.
