Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group Launches
A Free Surgery Day for Hands & Upper Arms
On October 6th, 2018, Colorado Springs, CO – Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group (CSOG) is teaming up with the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) to bring the first Free Hand & Upper Extremity Surgery Day to our region. Surgeries will take place at the Orthopaedic Spine Center of Southern Colorado on the second floor of CSOG’s current practice at 4110 Briargate Parkway, Suite 200.
“Many doctors do great things during medical mission trips. We at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group wanted to do something in our back yard.” said Jeff Watson MD.
Dr. Cassidy further explains, “Many physicians go overseas to help people in need, but sometimes overlook the need in our own communities. I thought it would be a lot of fun to help people who don’t have access or resources otherwise. People are so happy to have someone to listen and genuinely care about them.”
“The Touching Hands Project is dedicated to expanding our reach right here at home. Our U.S. missions, called “Hand Day”, take place at the facilities of hand surgeon members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. During these one-day missions, the medical staff provides free hand surgery for patients in their community who do not have access to hand care. These patients need our help for a variety of medical conditions that require surgery to be able to return to work and support their families.” – from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand website (ASSH).

About CSOG: Since 1994, Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group (CSOG) has been a one-stop-shop for comprehensive orthopaedic care in Southern Colorado. As a large multispecialty group, CSOG has physicians who specialize in treating sports injuries, hand and arm injuries, foot and ankle problems, back and neck pain, hip and knee conditions, and arthritis. This allows CSOG physicians to refer to one another when they come across an injury that another doctor may have more experience treating. As a patient, this is much more convenient than having to go to another office and fill out more paperwork.
