Davenport, IA – At the most recent European Wrist Arthroscopy Society (EWAS) meeting held in Strasbourg, France on March 22 – 25, 2018, Dr. Tyson Cobb, a faculty member, participated as both a lecturer and a lab instructor. “It was great,” says Dr. Cobb, “Although I’m there to teach, I always learn so much from the participants and other instructors. There were surgeons from 26 different countries represented at this one meeting. The exchanges in expertise and experiences are so rich. I gain a global perspective in best practices for patient care.”
A Quad Cities hand surgeon, Dr. Cobb has over 20 years of experience performing minimally invasive procedures in the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Wrist arthroscopy is a very specialized surgical technique that is performed using a small video camera to visualize the treatment area. Rather than opening the surgical site through a large incision, the scope and surgical instruments are inserted through small incisions, which allows for access to only the area needing treatment. “With wrist arthroscopy, we can treat chronic wrist pain, arthritis, wrist fractures, ganglion cysts, and ligament tears through small portals, which allows for less postoperative pain, less scarring, and faster recovery. It’s a win-win for the patient and the surgeon,” says Dr. Tyson Cobb.
The EWAS is currently the leading organization to advance surgical techniques in minimally invasive wrist surgery. Dr. Cobb’s research and specialized minimally invasive techniques for hand, wrist, and upper extremity surgery have given him international credibility as a foremost authority.
