Congratulation to the winner of the FESSH Clinical Research Grant for 2022
Dr Michiel Zuidam has been awarded the 2022 FESSH Clinical Research Grant (10.000€).
Dr Zuidam's project is directed towards studies on surgical management of painful neuromas in the upper extremity. Patients with extremity neuromas often suffer from a pain that is highly debilitating with a reduced quality of life and long-term pain medication use, resulting in a substantial socioeconomic burden. Dr Zuidam's research is focused on evaluating methods that permanently and cost effectively provide good results for these patients. His studies will be directed towards determining if Targeted Muscles Reinnervation (TMR) is more effective in treating these patients, compared to simple neuroma excision or burying of the nerve in muscle. The project is a collaboration between the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands and Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Birmingham, UK. Altogether, Dr Zuidam has documented sincere interest in hand surgery and clinical research, why we believe that he is a excellent candidate for this grant.

Meet the FESSH member countries
In 1947, plastic surgeon Jaime Planas Guasch went to San Francisco, CA, to improve his knowledge in hand surgery. He was the first Spanish fellow in hand surgery in the United States, training under Sterling Bunnell. In 1951, Planas was responsible for the translation of Sterling Bunnell's 'Surgery of the Hand' (2nd Edition) into Spanish. This Spanish version would change the future of hand surgery in Spain and in the Ibero-American countries. After that, Planas became one of the founders of the hand surgery society in Spain in 1969.
