subspecialty of Plastic Surgery or Orthopedic surgery since 2009. It has a 

separate examination (practical and written) after compulsory training (fellowship) 

for one year in a certified institution at home or abroad. Most of hand surgeons in 

Latvia are Plastic surgeons with 6 years of postgraduate training. There are two 

centers where candidates can undergo training: Centre of Plastic and 

Reconstructive microsurgery of Latvia, dept of Hand Surgery (affiliated with Riga  

Stradins University) and Hospital of Traumatology and Orthopedics.
