Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hand surgeons are surgeons specializing in the care and treatment of problems relating to the hand, wrist, and forearm including trauma and hand infection. Many hand surgeons also treat the elbow, arm and shoulder. Hand surgeons do not just engage in surgery - they are the primary medical doctors to deal with these issues, and often use non-surgical approaches.In the US, hand surgery is a subspecialty of surgery. A hand surgeon must first qualify as a general surgeon, plastic surgeon, or orthopedic surgeon, and then must do a one year long fellowship in hand practice. Board certified general, plastic, or orthopedics surgeons who have completed approved fellowship training in hand surgery and have met a number of other practice requirements are qualified to take the "Certificate of Added Qualifications in Surgery of the Hand" examination, commonly referred to as the "CAQSH."
