Advances in Hand Surgery 2021 

I was delighted to participate in Advances in Hand Surgery Course which connected virtually so many surgeons, trainees and therapists over the last 3 days.

The conference offered an excellent update on innovations and advances in many aspects of hand surgery from hand transplantation, Dupuytren’s disease, wrist fractures, infections and chronic pain management to intricacies of hand therapy, joint implants and complex pediatric hand surgery.  

My talk aimed to inform the audiences of my preferences and practical tips adopted over the years when treating patients with dreaded flexor tendon ruptures. It was even more important to discuss recent literature and few seminal papers which propose radically different surgical and rehabilitation approach when dealing with the primary flexor tendon injuries, in order to minimise the risk of tendon ruptures from the start. 

Thanks to MAH Conferences, BSSH and The BritishJournal of Conference Medicine for organising such useful Conferences.
