Emergency Care & Office Based Surgery

The upcoming 2022 Spring Meeting will finaly take place in the Chateau de Namur on 14 May and focus on two central topics in modern days hand surgery practice: office WALANT surgery and emergency care (see programme below).

Those seemingly antagonist faces of our everyday practice are in fact interconnected and apt to take advantage of each other, economically as well as qualitatively.

Several high-profile speakers from Belgium and abroad have been invited to share their knowledge and experience on these topics. Two masterclasses and two participative round tables will tackle state-of-the-art fingertip reconstruction, nerve reconstruction, flexor tendon repair and rehabilitation, and limb replantation. We will also include one hour of radioprotection focused on practical everyday x-ray use.

All registered persons from 2020 will receive an email to reconfirm their participation.

We cannot wait to welcome you in this beautiful place for a very enriching share of knowledge!
