• Define the step-by-step principles of surgical treatment of hand, wrist, and elbow trauma to both bone and soft tissue.
• Define the step-by-step principles of surgical treatment of hand and wrist arthritic conditions.
• Incorporate technical operative pearls into their clinical practice which will aid in improving patient outcomes in the surgical treatment of the hand, wrist, and elbow.
ASSH members Allen Bishop, MD and Neil Jones, MD were the keynote speakers at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society for Surgery of the Hand in Thun, Switzerland in November.
Dr. Bishop gave 3 presentations on “Failed PIP Joint Arthroplasty,” “Ulnar Nerve Transposition” and “Vascularized bone Grafts for Scaphoid Non-union.” Dr. Jones gave 3 presentations on “Indications and Current Surgical Techniques of Nerve Grafting,” “Tendon Transfers for Radial Nerve Palsy” and “Microsurgical Toe Transfers for Reconstruction of Congenital Hand Anomalies.”
The autonomy of the rising number of employed physicians ought to be respected, and patient care should come before the financial interests of employers, according to principles on physician employment adopted in November at the American Medical Association Interim Meeting.
The principles, contained in an AMA Board of Trustees report the House of Delegates adopted, cover potential flash points in physician-employer relationships such as conflicts of interest, contracting, payment agreements, peer reviews, performance evaluations and medical staff-hospital relations.
