Invited State-of-the-Art Lecture at German-Speaking Spinal Cord Society Meeting

An invited special lecture on tetraplegia hand surgery was delivered by Jan Fridén at the 28th congress of the Deutschsprachige Medizinische Gesellschaft für Paraplegie (DMGP, German-Speaking Medical Society of Paraplegia) on June 24-27, 2015. This annual meeting united physicians and therapists working at spinal cord centers of Germany, Austria and Switzerland was held in Kassel, Germany, perfectly organized by Dr. Marion Saur (photo left). Important scientific contributions were made by the Nottwil team and the special lecture was exceptionally well received by the audience. Many detailed and inspiring questions and a lively discussion reflected the growing interest of the rehabilitation medicine community on surgical rehabilitation of arm and hand function. The next DMGP meeting will be in 2016 in Hamburg, Germany -
