• Foundation for Hand Surgery


Help develop excellence centres


The number of serious injuries (big crashes and amputations) has decreased in recent years thanks to information and prevention campaigns in factories and for the general public.

The progress in miniaturization and microsurgery has allowed real technological prowess.

Functional reconstructions (neurotisation, nervous palliative, four-fingered hand, minimally invasive surgery, etc.) have replaced or supplemented anatomical reconstructions with the goal of returning to work as quickly as possible to avoid social exclusion.

The advent of hyper specialised centres has helped reduce the rate of sequelae and the duration of functional disability.

The ambition of the foundation is to help create or develop centres dedicated to hand surgery in countries where such structures do not exist.
