 Bess_Logo

The British Elbow and Shoulder Society was founded as a result of an increasing interest in shoulder and elbow surgery in the UK in the early 1980s, and particularly after a very successful Third ICSS meeting in Japan. The stimulus came from Michael Watson, who wrote the following letter on 3 November 1986: 'I think the time has come to take the bull by the horns and seriously consider the nuts and bolts of setting up a British Shoulder Surgery Association. I am sure that we are going to start to get enquiries for our corporate stance on technical administration. As a result of that letter the founding members of BESS met on 28 March 1987 at 92 Harley Street in London and set up the Society. The meetings of BESS have been held annually, the next one booked for June 2012.

NEW_Logo_BOSTAA_and_outline

BOSTAA is the society for orthopaedic surgeons with an interest in the management of sports trauma. We include all anatomical sub-specialties but encourage an interest in the non-surgical aspects of sports medicine. We have links with national and international societies in the field of sports medicine. We have around a hundred members. BOSTAA hosts very popular sessions during the BOA annual congress and are expanding the number of courses we offer around the country. We aim to improve the understanding of the management of the sportsman/woman with a sporting injury, from dealing with the causes of injury managing the injury itself through to the return to sporting activity. Sports and exercise medicine is now recognised by the UK government as a specialty in its own right. With the prospect of the UK hosting the Olympic games approaching, sports medicine will become more important and sports trauma will be an integral part of that.

The British Society for Surgery of the Hand includes over 700 Plastic, Orthopaedic and Hand surgeons, trainees and health professionals who provide care for the injured and disordered hand. 

The Society is a powerful force in promoting and directing the development of Hand Surgery in the United Kingdom. It co-ordinates education and research in this field. The Society organises two scientific meetings each year. It also disseminates knowledge through the “Journal of Hand Surgery” which it has published since 1984 and, before that, as the “Hand” since 1969. The Society has been running Instructional Courses for surgeons and trainees across Europe since 1999. These cover the entire curriculum in Hand Surgery in cycles of three years. 

The Society is a member of the Federation of European Societies for Surgery of the Hand (FESSH) and the International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand (IFFSH).

A Hand Club had existed in the UK since 1952, having been formed by a few eminent hand surgeons at a dinner in the Athenaeum. The “Second Hand Club” was established in 1956 to widen the membership and subsequently expanded into the British Society for Surgery of the Hand when it changed its constitution on 15th November 1968.
