2015-2016 APF Fellow Dr. Assaf Kadar -
Hands That Hold a World of Medicine
Dr. Assaf Kadar and his family
Dr. Assar Kadar says the hand holds a world of medicine. 

"Hand surgery is a field of medicine that is actually an integration of several professions - orthopedics, plastic surgery, vascular and nerve surgery," says the 2015-2016 APF Research Fellow in Hand Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. "Contrary to most other sub-specialties in orthopedics, which usually focus on bones, in hand surgery we deal with all of the structures in the hand - bone, soft tissue, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, etc. So hand surgery is by far the most diverse field in orthopedics and that's why I'm drawn to it.
