Welcome to Malmö, and the 28th Scandinavian Society for Surgery of the Hand congress 2022!
Little did we know when we started out to plan for the 28th SSSH meeting what a kind of year we had ahead of us. We bravely planned for a meeting gathering up to three hundred therapists, surgeons and delegates from the industry. The meeting was planned to be held in August 2021, but we couldn’t foresee a virus that would paralyze our communities and cause tragical personal losses.
When the hospital conference center in April 2021 was rebuilt into a vaccination central, it became evident that we would not be able to stage the meeting in 2021.
We however felt that we had so much we would like to bring to the Scandinavian and Baltic handsurgical community that we didn’t want to just cancel the show. Instead, we regroup and rally, and bring you the 28th SSSH congress 2022!
We stick to our purpose. To be a meeting place for surgeons, therapists and industry with a special interest in handsurgery. A chance to exchange experience, science and friendship in a Scandinavian and Baltic environment. An opportunity to extend your local network.
We will continue to work hard to provide an interesting and invigorating program for surgeons and therapists. We will hold a good mix of lectures, seminars, free speeches, a manned poster walk and social events. SSSH will promote young researchers, and grant one upcoming talent from each member nation with a free entrance to the conference.
Sign up for some summer vibes in Malmö, the city of parks!
