About / Bio / Mission
The Foundation for Hand Surgery is a non-profit organisation dedicated to developing and improving the hand, wrist and upper limb surgery.

Our goal is to promote education and research in the hand surgery sector by establishing an interactive European centre of excellence.

Our mission will focus on three objectives:

EDUCATION
The Foundation will offer additional training opportunities for surgeons at all stages of their professional training, from the early years to the final stage of perfecting their already acquired technical skills.

The aim is to complement European university training courses by allowing trained, or still in-training, orthopaedic surgeons and plastic surgeons to undertake practical work.

RESEARCH
We aim to devote resources to develop research axes that bring new concepts and new medical and surgical solutions for hand and wrist surgery over the next decades.

The Foundation’s goal is to assist in the publication of scientific papers and to this end we propose to host researchers, statisticians, epidemiologists, surgeons, engineers, scientists, etc. to enable them to collaborate on clinical studies projects and thus facilitate the publication of their results.

SUPPORT
The Foundation will develop the creation of services of hand surgery in countries that do not have any, by providing financial resources (equipment, training, monitoring).

The Foundation supports, in Switzerland and abroad, the development of hand, wrist & upper limb surgery, supporting projects in the following fields:

• Medical research;
• Scientific publication;
• Surgery training;
• Promotion of hand and upper limb surgery; and
• Funding jobs and infrastructures in the field of hand and
upper limb surgery in countries, where hand surgery is not
available.
