Meet the FESSH member societies – History of Hand Surgery in Belgium
Belgium has a long history in surgery. Most famous pioneers are Andreas Vesalius in the 1500s, who described human anatomy in his masterpiece De humani corporis fabrica libri septem and Albin Lambotte in the turn of XIXth and XXth century who was the godfather
of osteosynthesis.

The Belgian Hand Group (BHG) was founded in 1972. It was among the founders of FESSH in 1990 and it is also long-time member of the IFSSH.


Approaching deadline: 31 October 2020 – FESSH Basic Research Grant 2021

The grant aims to encourage exploratory, translational or developmental research by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of new clinical approaches. Therefore, this grant is directed towards basic and translational science and novel ideas/techniques
in hand surgery, rather than studies on clinical series of patients.
