Welcome to the Southern California Society for Surgery of the Hand website. The SCSSH was established as a formal society in 1992 under the guidance of Roy A. Meals M.D. Myles J. Cohen M.D. and Norman P. Zemel M.D.  It replaced the LA Hand club. A more complete history of the society can be found on the history link.

The SCSSH consists of approximately 60 members across the Southern California region, encompassing Los Angeles county, Orange county, Ventura county, Riverside county and San Bernardino county. The SCSSH holds quarterly meetings for presentations by outside speakers or journal club review. Information on membership can be found by following the link to the Bylaws page.

The SCSSH is in the final stages of planning a scientific program for the Hand surgery Update which is to be held at UC Irvine on November 23, 2007. Further information on this can be found through the link to the program.

Thank you for visiting our website.
