Vesalius and Wrist Pain: Using Medical History to Solve Current Problems Online
What's even better than adding to current medical knowledge? Correcting current medical knowledge which is wrong but widely disseminated! In this talk, Dr. Nelson will discuss how he has successfully challenged conventional medical knowledge related to wrist anatomy. It is hoped that correcting these errors will enhance hand surgeons' ability to address wrist pain.
