Support the AFSH through the AMAZON SMILE program! Amazon Smile is an easy way to support your favorite charity every time you shop and at NO cost to you. Through this program you get the same low price for your purchased item and Amazon gives back a portion (0.5% on all eligible purchases) of the purchase price to the AFSH. Learn more about Amazon Smile. To set AFSH as your preferred charity on AmazonSmile go to

Once you've identified your charity you just need to make your purchase through the AmazonSmile (same process as if you were on Amazon) and that's it! Any future purchases will go to benefit the AFSH automatically as long as you're shopping through AmazonSmile.

The AFSH is making great strides towards its $5 million campaign goal and this is an easy way to support AFSH initiatives in Research, Education and Outreach. Your donation is just a couple of clicks away. Please support the AFSH by using Amazon Smile.

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.
