The 18th Annual Cutting Edge New Technology in Upper Extremity Surgery Course at the Cleveland Clini

I had the pleasure of being a faculty member once again for this fantastic course that is run by William Seitz and Zong-Ming Li. As a colleague and collaborator with both of them, I always enjoy coming to this annual meeting and sharing new insights with colleagues, trainees, and friends.

I presented the American Society for Surgery of the Hand experience with the domestic “Touching Hands Program; A day of volunteer surgery for uninsured and underinsured care for patients” following the inaugural year experience in 2016 in Atlanta Georgia, San Francisco, Nashville Tennessee, and Philadelphia Pennsylvania were the other cities added to the list in 2017. I had the opportunity to present video interviews and case material from experience last November. It was very well received.

As usual, great discussions of various topics in hand and upper limb surgery took place over a 2-day period.

It’s been a year since the COVID-19 epidemic first hit us here in the United States, and of course around the entire world. We mourn the catastrophic loss of life and reflect on how much our future will be changed… at least for a while, and maybe longer!
