Perspectives is a monthly newsletter launched in October 2017 by the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Each issue includes a compilation of commentaries from ASSH members sharing insights on everything from surgical tips to life philosophies. This newsletter is edited by Kevin F. Lutsky, MD.

Each month’s issue is guided by a writing prompt from our Editor, such as “write about your favorite tool of the trade” or “write about the advice that you would give your younger self.” However, we welcome submissions on any topic. If you are interested in submitting to Perspectives, please contact ASSH staff member Kendall Steinle at
