Welcome to the functional service of the hand, upper limb and peripheral nerve surgery service site of the European Georges Pompidou Hospital (HEGP) in Paris.

    This service plays an integral part in the HEGP traumatologic and orthopaedic surgery department. It has three missions : care, teaching and research.

    Unique within the Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris -the largest hospital complex group in Europe – this department is dedicated to upper limbs and peripheral nerve pathologies, and more specifically sports pathologies.
