Introduction - Starting in 1992, the annual Brussels Hand and Upper Limb International Symposium organized by Frederic Schuind and hold in Genval close to Brussels rapidly became a landmark in interdisciplinary scientific podiums to Exchange medical knowledge in this rapidly growing and changing field.
Last year, Brussels was the place to be for a very successful Distal Radio Ulnar Joint meeting. This year the theme will be “Hand and Wrist Arthroplasty” and will focus on managing problems and complications.
International exchange and come together of colleagues and friends are our aim. The meeting is also open for younger colleagues from Europe and all around the world interested by the specific format of the meeting: recognized experts will give key lectures on the chosen topic; free papers are added and huge time is reserved for discussion.
Continue to trust us and join us for the next Brussels Hand Symposium in the heart of Europe for an interesting scientific and social program.
