It is a great privilege for the German Society of Hand Therapy to invite Hand Specialists from all over the world to come to Berlin for the next Triennial Congress of IFSSH and IFSHT. Berlin is an example of two communities with different approaches and ways of living having successfully joined together to form a vibrant, forward-looking society that is open to new impulses and willing to meet new challenges. There could be no better place to join and intensify the cooperation between surgeons and therapists as well as the experience of therapists from different cultures and countries. We are certain that it will be an unforgettable event. See you in Berlin!

It is our aim to allow as many hand surgeons as possible the report of their scientific and clinical experience. At the same time we want to bring together all the various disciplines of hand surgery from all parts of the world. All main topics of hand surgery will be included into the scientific program. In addition to lectures of invited international experts there will be various workshops, instructional courses and new formats, like the “Educational Monday”. Feel encouraged to send us your abstracts, share your experience with us and actively take part in this unique event. Be curious!

With its extraordinary history – full of contrasts and significant changes – Berlin is one of the most fascinating cities in the world. But the German capital provides not only a great variety of cultural and entertainment options, but also all the necessary requirements for a successful meeting. The scientific and the accompanying social program will provide a great opportunity for inspiring exchange under colleagues as well as making new friends. Experience it for yourself!
