Einstein asserted that if you don’t understand the problem, you can’t be part of the solution.  The IRCAD-IWC organization enhances the wrist surgery world with international wrist experts and comprehensive wrist surgery education.  The IWC shares deep thoughts about wrist problems, thereby pursuing Einstein’s road to solutions.

The IWC affiliation with IRCAD, known worldwide for its emphasis on education, minimally invasive surgery, robotics and imaging-facilitated procedures, introduces superior fellowship training for young wrist surgeons in their quest for understanding this complex human joint.  Together, they bring new focus to research opportunities and innovative surgical ideas.  Together, they will help to rewrite the history of wrist surgery.
