An Overview
This year, the 17th Annual New Technology in Upper Extremity Surgery: The Cutting Edge With Advancing Translational Research will focus on the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder during June 4-6, 2017, in Cleveland, Ohio. The Annual New Technology in Upper Extremity Surgery represents an on-going commitment to provide an introduction to the latest advances in the care and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremity for practicing orthopaedic surgeons, orthopaedic surgery residents/fellows, physician assistants, occupational therapists, physical therapists, registered nurses, orthopaedic surgery assistants, scrub technologists, surgical assistants, orthopaedic technicians, and biomedical engineers. The combination of offering exposure to live surgical cases, hands-on skills workshops, didactic lectures and case presentation discussions, with direct faculty/participant interaction provides an ideal platform for the dissemination of new techniques designed to enhance patient care through a thoughtful educational experience.
