Biennial Meeting of the Scandinavian Hand Society in Helsinki, Finland

Welcome - Congreszon: "Welcome. The organizing committee has a pleasure to invite you to the Biennial Meeting of the Scandinavian Hand Society in Helsinki, Finland. The meeting is organized by the Finnish Society for Surgery of the Hand and the Finnish Society of Hand Therapists.

The congress venue is located at a comfortable seaside congress hotel just five kilometres from the city centre. The guest speakers represent the most innovative hand surgeons, scientists and hand therapists of recent years in Europe.

The main topics are selected from the themes that have shown the most advancement and innovations or controversy. Instructional courses will be prepared with special reference to our resident members.

A special afternoon for the workshops will be arranged on Wednesday afternoon before the get together party. We are sure that you will bring home lots of new ideas and warm memories from Helsinki."
