In Memoriam

Members of the Hand Society are an elite corp of highly-skilled individuals who leverage their abilities to help others.  This page honors members who have passed away recently.  If you have information you would like to share with the Society regarding a former colleague’s accomplishments, his or her family, even hobbies that will help us honor the member, please share it with us at [email protected].

We invite all of you as fellow members in this select group to take a moment and recognize the contributions to the Society, the field of hand surgery as well as commitment to family and friendships these previous members have made.
