Dear Members and Guests
I would like to welcome all of you to the Autumn Scientific Meeting of the BSSH at One Great George Street, London where the theme of the meeting will be ‘Progress through Science.’
The programme explores the themes of the distal radioulnar joint and management of complex disorders of forearm rotation. Technological innovations will be addressed including the application of 3D computer technology in reconstruction of the distal forearm. By contrast we will be looking at advances in nerve repair from basic sciences through to strategies for management of nerve injury and techniques of nerve repair.
I am delighted to welcome as guest speakers Dr Luis Scheker from Louisville, USA, Professor Susan Mackinnon from Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis and Dr Frederik Verstreken from University Ziekenhuis, Antwerp, Belgium. I know that you will be both informed and entertained by what each has to share with us.
We will be updated on the projects that we are developing with the Healing Foundation, funding research in hand surgery.
As ever there are a wealth of stimulating papers contributed by our members with several topics emerging as areas of current interest.
Our Society dinner on the Thursday evening will be held at the recreated Globe Theatre on the south bank of the Thames with water taxis to take us back at the end of the evening.
I hope to see you there.
