Office Efficiencies in Hand Surgery / How To Build an Elective Hand Practice Sunday, September 30 Sun, Sep 30 4:30-5:30 p.m.
This session will discuss issues related to building and sustaining an elective hand surgery practice as a surgeon.
It will focus on:
- Scope of practice following residency/fellowship training (i.e. how much "other types of plastic surgery" to do)
- Defining oneself as a plastic hand and extremity surgeon (particularly in metropolitan areas)
- Carving out one's hand surgery niche in his/her hospital and region
- Carrying out an efficient hand surgery practice including the use of ultrasound, office imaging, and injections (trigger finger, CMC arthritis, etc)
This session will be set up as a panel, with brief presentations from each participant followed by high-level discussion among the faculty with time for questions and additional discussion.
At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Define the scope of practice of a plastic hand surgeon.
- List the different ways to build durable referral patterns for elective hand surgery.
- Incorporate the use of in-office imaging (US, radiology) to one's hand surgery practice.
- Discuss the indications and options for performing in-office hand surgery procedures.
- Identify opportunities to expand one's elective hand surgery practice (workers' compensation, etc)
