ASSH Celebrates 1 Year at 822 West Washington

Staff Note

It is with pride that ASSH celebrates 1 year in our new home in Chicago’s West Loop.  Staff remains delighted with our new space, which offers numerous benefits including improved access to public transportation; tread desks and standing desks to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors and an open floor plan to foster communication and collaboration.  We are also happy to report that owning our own building has brought with it a savings of nearly $185,000 on an annual basis to the Hand Society.  And we own the building free and clear.  In addition, we have already leased a portion of the building to our first tenants, who will move in in the next few months.  Happy Anniversary!

Search Tips

Tip 1: Start with the basics like “carpal tunnel.” You can always add more words later to narrow down results.

Tip 2: Choose words carefully and avoid terms that do not concern surgery.

Tip 3: Avoid capitalization and conjunctions like “the,” “and,” “or,” or “in.” Also, avoid using media types like “video,” “article,” and “picture.”

Tip 4: Your results can be refined by using either the tabs at the top (Video, Articles/WEB, Images, JHS, Products/Vendors), or the filters on the left (Filter by Source, Filter by Format, Filter by Purpose, etc.).

Tip 5: Punctuation can enhance your search as well. Use quotes (“search term”) to only include pages with the same words in the same order. But only use this if you are looking for an exact word or phrase, otherwise you may exclude helpful results. Add an asterisk (search term*) as a placeholder for any unknown or wildcard terms. For example, C*l Tunnel would give you results for Cubital Tunnel and Carpal Tunnel. Place a question mark (search term?) for single-character wildcard matching. For example, pa?ent would give you results for parent, patent, etc. You may also use the plus sign (search + word) between words for words you must have in the results.

Tip 6: We are always trying to improve our search, if you are having any trouble with search please refer to our survey here and we will use your comments to improve our search. You can also watch our search help video.
