Dr. Jacques Hacquebord is  Chief of Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at NYU Langone Health. He also serves as the co-chief of the Hand Surgery service at Bellevue Hospital (a Level 1 trauma and regional replant center) and co-chief of the Center for Amputation Reconstruction. He did his surgical residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Washington and the world-renowned trauma center Harborview Medical Center and did his fellowship in Hand/Microsurgery at the University of California at Irvine with Dr Neil Jones. He then completed two traveling fellowships in reconstructive microsurgery and brachial plexus surgery with the first in China and then the second at Ganga Hospital in India. His principal clinical interest and passion within hand and orthoplastic surgery is the primary management and secondary reconstruction of the traumatized upper extremity. This includes replantation surgery, reconstruction of bone and soft tissues deficits in the upper extremity, and complex nerve reconstruction surgery. 

The discussion in Part 2 included the following items: other types of clinicians who provide treatment for patients who need hand surgery; influence of artificial intelligence (AI) on hand surgery; complications that could arise during hand surgery and how to mitigate them; management of post-operative pain; dealing with pre-operative anxiety experienced by patients; quality of patient information on the Internet about hand health problems; advice on how to prevent health problems regarding the hands; personal lessons learned that have implications for improving patient care; and research involvement at NYU Langone Health.
