We are proud to announce that our Director of Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery, Dr. Tyson Cobb, was invited to be a guest speaker at the annual meeting for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH). This year’s theme was “Embracing Change: The Practice of Hand Surgery in the 21st Century.” The conference, which was held in Seattle, Washington, attracts an international assemblage of experienced physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, and researchers. The purpose of the event is to allow leading hand and upper extremity surgeons to review the latest techniques and technology, present unique patient cases, and develop innovative skills through special Instructional Course Lectures hosted by the association.
Dr. Cobb was invited to participate in the “Cubital Tunnel Syndrome — What To Do in 2015” symposium as a guest lecturer. His experience with minimally invasive surgical techniques for cubital tunnel syndrome—the second most common cause of compression-based nerve pain in the upper extremity after carpal tunnel syndrome—singled him out as an ideal presenter at this forum. While surgery for this condition used to entail a complex procedure, leaving a long, conspicuous scar, Dr. Cobb’s innovative approach allows for a faster recovery and a smaller, less noticeable incision. His lecture covered topics including emerging trends, best practices, and developments in minimally invasive treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome. In addition to these duties, Dr. Cobb also served as the ASSH International Guest Society Ambassador, and he lectured at a special event for the International Wrist Investigators Workshop (IWIW).
