Dear friends. It is with sadness that I have to announce the death of my mentor in wrist surgery, Philippe Saffar, honnor member of EWAS.

He was the man who made me share his passion for wrist surgery.

It's still with him I realized my first wrist arthroscopy in 1985.

PC HO,  in his address as new President of EWAS during the FESSH congress in milano, remembered that, thanks to Philippe Saffar, he decided to dedicate his professional life to the wrist ... also!

So we are almost all his children, and we just lost a great wrist surgeon.
