It takes training, experience, dedication and a lot of effort from the patient and the treating surgeon to bring the hand back to normal functioning even after an apparently trivial injury The Pakistan Society for Surgery of the Hand (PSSH) was founded in Lahore in 1992 by Prof Tahseen Cheema, Prof Tariq Sohail , Prof Abdul Hakim Babar, Prof Salim Malik and Dr Muhammad Umar. Prof Tahseen Cheema was the founding President
