Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

The national congress of our association, which is traditionally held biannually, is planned to be held in Eskişehir between May 10-13 in 2020.

Our congress, which will be held for the 17th time, has become a tradition as a social and scientific gathering where hand surgery-lovers have been coming together for over 40 years.

Eskişehir is a modern city in Central Anatolia and was home to Phrygian civilization (there is none who do not know the stories of King Midas!), one of the Anatolian civilizations in history and it has special importance as it is on the Silk Road.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to thank everyone who contributed and will contribute to the preparation of the congress. I wish it will be a scientifically and socially delightful congress.

Sincerely yours.

Prof. Dr. Levent Yalçın
Turkish Society for Surgery of the Hand and Upper Extremity Association President

Dear colleagues,

I salute you with best regards as the President of 17th Turkish Hand and Upper Extremity Congress to be held between 10-13 May 2020 in Eskişehir.

I am certain that this Congress at which - all congenital, acquired and traumatic diseases will be examined all at once which are related with Hand Surgery that still maintains its importance despite the advanced technology and the facilitated daily life, - will contribute not only to those who set their hearts on Hand Surgery but to all my colleagues. The basic topics of Hand Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery will be discussed under the light of Scientific data by the expert scientists.

Dear colleagues, your proposals and contributions about the congress will motivate the organizing committee to take good decisions. Please share your ideas with us.

I am honored to invite you all to the 17th National Hand and Upper Extremity Congress. With sincere regards,

Prof. Dr. Mustafa Herdem
Congress President

Dear Colleagues,

We have the honor and joy to invite you to the 6th National Hand Rehabilitation Congress to be organized between 10 – 13 May, 2020 in Eskişehir Taşigo Hotel by the Hand Therapists Association.

In this Congress which will be organized in conjunction with 17th National Congress of Turkish Society for Hand and Upper Extremity, we are aiming to prepare a satisfying congress by the basic medical science topics and the current scientific content besides rehabilitation topics. In addition to Scientific Content, we are also offering a rich social program by the beauties of Eskişehir.

Succession in hand therapy is mainly secured by early and appropriate intervention. Even though the resources in health care services seem to be enhanced, the number of professionals is still not sufficient. Especially in the follow up and treatment of patients with lower socioeconomic status, there are still problems of reaching experienced healthcare professionals in public institutions. As a result, many patients are only able to reach the health care personnel only after a certain amount of time loss. For this reason, we have decided that the theme of the Congress to be “Rehabilitation in cases of Late Intervention and Complications”. Through this, we will not only be able to discuss treatment and rehabilitation approaches under appropriate circumstances, but also exchange ideas on treatment options and approaches in case of late interventions and complications.

We are aiming a satisfying congress full of lectures and courses from experienced colleagues as well as paper and poster presentations to be awarded. In addition, we will also organize a session at which we will discuss the problems and proposed solutions in the field of hand rehabilitation. We expect to have a wonderful congress in Eskişehir – a spot we believe is very convenient in terms of location and accessibility.

We will be honored to see all our colleagues and researchers who show interest in Hand Rehabilitation. While we invite all men and women of Science to the Congress, we offer our regards to you all on behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee.
