Welcome message

It gives us immense pleasure to welcome you to the Manipal Upper Limb Course and 5th Annual Indo-US Hand Surgery Conference which will be held at Manipal on 17th March 2023 and 18th - 19th of March 2023 respectively.

The first day of the program will involve a Post-graduate teaching which includes exam oriented case presentation and discussion, problem based interactive lectures and short clinical video presentations.

With the success of the previous programs and feedback from delegates we have structured this year’s Indo-US Hand Surgery conference schedule accordingly. The theme for the conference this year is "Common Conditions in Surgery of the Upper Limb" and will cover tendon and bone trauma and simple wound cover solutions in hand injuries and now additionally paediatric and specific non-traumatic chronic conditions. Our outstanding faculty are leaders in the field of Hand Surgery as well as in the field of education. They will be giving short, crisp talks towards understanding clinical practice in Hand surgery. We have kept small group sessions which will give the delegates an ample opportunity for intimate interactions with faculty. The curriculum is case based and includes video based teaching and also includes dedicated time to the common skin flaps in Hand surgery, treatment strategy and algorithm for cerebral palsy hand, all of which will add more dimensions to the learning experience.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to extend a warm and sincere invitation to all and join us for this Hand Surgery Education Initiative. I am sure that this scientific meet will generate a renewed interest in the field of Hand Surgery and forge new friendships. We look forward to meeting you in March 2023 at the educational hub of Manipal
