Recent Award Winners Upcoming Meetings Support PHSG with a Donation

About Pediatric Hand Study Group

Pediatric Hand Study Group is an association of hand surgeons, occupational therapists, and other healthcare professionals  devoted to the care of children with hand and upper extremity differences.  This is an inclusive and collegial group that focuses on improving the care of children by supporting research meetings, international fellowship, and an annual award recognizing most impactful pediatric hand and upper extremity research publication.

First started in 1995, the PHSG is now supported by donations honoring Paul Manske MD, one of our group’s founders.


Support the PHSG

In order to honor the memory of Dr. Manske, we have created the Paul Manske Pediatric Hand Research Fund to:

  1. Support research by offering grants for the institutions hosting future annual meetings of the PHSG.
  2. Continue to offer an annual award for the pediatric hand article that provides the greatest potential impact on the treatment of pediatric hand conditions.
  3. Sponsor international hand surgeons to attend our annual meeting.
