Dr. Jesse Jupiter, a surgeon in the Hand & Arm Center in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, was recognized as an International Pioneer in Hand Surgery at the recent Congress of the International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand (IFSSH) in Berlin, Germany.

According to the IFSSH website, they award "Pioneer of Hand Surgery" status to people who excel exceptionally, beyond what is normally expected in the field of hand surgery.

The enormous contribution of the Pioneers to Hand Surgery will influence many generations of Hand Surgeons to come. Ultimately of course, their accomplishments will benefit countless patients far into the future. The IFSSH Membership therefore, expresses its sincere appreciation and gratitude to our Pioneers for enriching our passion, Hand Surgery.
