Emergency Physicians don’t choose their career because they love hand surgery, but soon realize they must deal with hand patients daily. Every year over 18,000,000 Americans consult a doctor for hand or upper limb problem. Sadly, US medical schools offer little if any instruction in basic evaluation and early treatment of hand problems.
COMMON HAND INJURIES AND INFECTIONS addresses this and assumes no previous training in Hand Surgery. It teaches the skills to effectively evaluate and treat these patients with confidence.
