International collaboration

Our National Center has an active collaboration with multiple tetraplegia hand surgery units in the world. We offer both fellowships for specialists in hand, plastic or orthopaedic surgery and observerships during shorter visits. Most recent fellowship was completed by Dr. Ivan Justan from Czech Republic.
