Surgical Anatomy of the Hand: From Rodin to Reconstruction
The surgical anatomy of the hand is extremely complex in terms of structure and function. This course will explore the anatomy of the hand in several different contexts: its representation in art forms, the historical development of the study of hand anatomy, current operative techniques for reconstruction, advances in tissue engineering, and the future of hand transplantation. We will trace investigations into the anatomy of the hand over the centuries. We will visit the Rodin collection of hand sculptures at the Cantor Arts Center, do anatomic dissections on a cadaver upper extremity, hear lectures on hand reconstruction, tour tissue engineering research laboratories, and get tutorials inside the operating room to observe actual hand reconstruction procedures.
