Course Description: This is a course for intermediate to advanced practitioners who are interested in learning the intricacy of the PIP starting with the anatomy and mechanics. After an understanding of the complexity and normal movement of this joint, we will discuss fractures, dislocations which cause secondary deformities.

Objectives: Upon attending this course the participants will demonstrate knowledge of the following:

1. PIP joint anatomy and mechanism of finger motion

2. How proximal, middle, and distal phalanges intricately interact with each other in a  kinematic chain

3. Structure the management of PIP joint fractures and dislocations based on sound clinical reasoning

4. Demonstrate and manage pathomechanics of swan neck and boutonniere deformities.
