(Non-CME Workshop, for ACMS Members only)

$375.00 registration fee
Space is limited to 50 registrants and granted on a first-come, first-served basis, with 2 participants per cadaveric hand.

Directed by Dr. Nathaniel Jellinek, this workshop is geared toward all nail surgeons, from beginner and intermediate to advanced levels. It offers small group, hands-on experience practicing a variety of nail surgery techniques. Participants will be instructed on:

  • How to avulse the nail in several fashions (partial and complete)
  • Perform multiple different nail procedures (including punch, shave, longitudinal techniques)
  • Treat nail melanoma with en bloc excision of all nail tissues and perform nail flaps (for those with more advanced background)

Approaches to patient assessment, including surgical planning, equipment/suture selection, and anatomical considerations to optimize outcomes will be covered. Anatomy as it relates to safe surgical technique will be stressed. Fresh frozen cadaveric hands that allow for realistic hands-on practice will be utilized.
