The pertinent features of each wrist disorder will then be highlighted, followed by detailed descriptions of treatment techniques and outcomes. Case examples will be presented prior to each didactic session, followed by open discussion. Breakout sessions will provide more in-depth coverage of specific wrist topics and provide updates on advances in arthroscopy and arthroplasty from recognized experts in the field.
