Esser Masterclass Asia

Hand surgery education is a rapidly developing field in Asia, in which real life surgery and online training are vital components to become a master in hand surgery. We are proud to expand the educational collaboration between Esser Masterclass and the Hand and Microsurgery Unit of Hospital UKM (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) in Kuala Lumpur. Based in the bustling metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, the department is a dynamic, young unit open to new ideas, concepts and techniques. Additionally, Esser Asia is proud to be supported by the Malaysian Hand Surgery Society and be the official course of the society.


The mission of the Esser Asia collaboration is making high-quality hand surgery education accessible for every hand surgeon around the globe and our motto is training from hand surgeons to hand surgeons.

The three day Esser Asia Hand Surgery Course is a comprehensive course where you as a hand surgeon will go through the four most important topics: Local Flaps, Tendons, Nerves and Fractures. This course is designed with theoretical and practical sessions on fresh frozen cadavers with two participants per cadaver.
