Russian Hand Surgery Society RHSS - FESSH


Despite a high level of medicine in general and surgery in particular in Russia there are still organizational difficulties for separating hand surgery as a different specialty which are connected with absence of treatment standards, regulatory framework for accreditation and examination of such specialists, educational programs and programs of professional retraining. Introduction of this specialty will allow to coordinate the work of doctors – hand surgeons; to create conditions for further training and improvement of quality of health care within the accepted standards.
