June 21, 2013
At our recent Spring meeting in Boston, Council had some significant and thoughtful discussions and made important decisions for our Society's future. We are taking steps toward becoming a more technology-driven society, offering more content through multiple outlets to benefit our growing membership.

The ASSH Council conducted a very exciting and productive meeting for three days in December. We were proud to hold the meeting at our brand new ASSH offices in Chicago for the very first time. As you all know, the December Council meeting includes our Young Leaders group. With the help of the 2012 Young Leaders, the Council made some very important decisions that I feel will benefit our members greatly.

As new ASSH President, I would like to thank our outgoing President, W. P.

July 21, 2012
One of my Presidential themes this year is inclusion, and we have strived to provide our members with more opportunities to be included in all aspects of the Hand Society.  In addition to enhancing the Council Director application and eliminating any bias toward academics, the Identity Task Force, led by Steve Glickel, MD, has taken an additional step toward promoting transparency and openness in leadership selection.  I am pleased to announce that for the first time in ASSH history, we will open two positions on the Nominating Committee for nomination and election by you, our members.

Presidential Update 02/11
February 21, 2011
Your ASSH Council met in lovely Rosemont during the third week of January to discuss many important and exciting issues that will impact our members and patients during the coming year. The seventh class of Young Leaders joined the festivities and as always, added a fresh perspective to our discussions. I don't want to overwhelm you with the details of the meeting, (the agenda and supporting material required a PDF file of over 600 pages), so this update will give you an overview of Council discussions. Additional information will be communicated in the Weekly Member Update as necessary.

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.
