Mayo Clinic and American Society of Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) are offering a non-CME course designed for established hand surgeons and hand fellows interested in improving their hand and wrist arthroplasty operative skills. Mayo Clinic faculty members will provide evidence-based overviews covering finger, thumb, and wrist arthroplasty. Case presentations will focus on managing problems and complications which will allow participants to see how experts avoid and approach problems.

The course will be delivered by expert clinicians who can share their practical tips and tricks during the cadaveric lab workshop. Learners will have the opportunity to work with instructors and industry leaders in the cadaveric lab.

The course size will be capped at 30 participants to keep faculty-to-participant ratio low to provide ample time for one-on-one attention in the skills lab.

The participant will have an increased familiarity with indications, contraindications and surgical techniques for the following types of hand and wrist arthroplasty:

  • PIP silicone, pyrocarbon and SRA arthroplasty
  • MCP silicone and pyrocarbon arthroplasty
  • CMC hemi-arthroplasty
  • DRUJ Hemi, total arthroplasty, constrained and unconstrained arthroplasty
  • Total wrist arthroplasty
