  • Description

    Fractures of the wrist account for nearly one sixth of fractures treated in emergency departments. However, no two fractures are treated the same way—each fracture has specific characteristics and requires customized approaches.

    The Advanced Wrist Summit allows participants to review and discuss clinical cases so they may discover new tactics and techniques on how to tackle clinical complications and challenges related to fractures and diseases of the wrist.

    This AO Trauma Hand NA Online series is being held through Zoom™. Some of the faculty involved in this series were featured as Sages on Stage last year. Watch those sessions here.
