David Brogan, MD, MSc, assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at Washington University, was recently selected for the 2021 British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH) International Visiting Fellowship.
This fellowship was formed by the BSSH and presented as a unique opportunity for members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH). The fellowship aims to foster academic collaboration and camaraderie between hand surgeons in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Dr. Brogan will travel to Europe late August 2021, where he will embark on a two-week journey to some of the most prestigious and well-known hand surgery centers in the United Kingdom, including the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby, the Hand Centres in Manchester, and the Hand and Wrist Service in Oxford. He’ll observe surgical cases, gaining additional insight into the treatment philosophies and surgical techniques from renowned hand surgery experts.
Dr. Brogan is a hand and wrist surgeon specializing in nerve injuries, microsurgical reconstruction and limb preservation. His current research is focused on nerve repair and regeneration, identifying ways to increase nerve healing through imaging, 3D printing and surgical treatment.
