The 2021 World Symposium on Congenital Malformations of the Hand and Upper Limb is designed to provide attendees with a practice update and high- level forum on the current state of limb development, assessment, classification, and treatment.  The international panel of speakers and attendees will share scientific presentations and cases to foster discussion together with expert Symposia on critical areas of focus.  The Faculty are recognized experts in congenital hand and upper limb malformations and have been selected for their knowledge, expertise, and contributions in this area.  Social events will encourage further discussion and relationship development amongst the international attendees.
