In this episode, we’re joined by Peter T. Hetzler, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, to discuss the importance of the hand in human identity and expression. In the U.S. private sector, hand injuries were the second most common workplace injury in 2019. They often significantly impact a person’s livelihood and ability to express themselves. We’ll explore the connections between hand injuries and mental health, the role of hand gestures in communication, and how treating hand injuries must involve a focus on mental illness and coping strategies. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss if you’re interested in understanding the significance of our hands in our daily lives.
Peter T. Hetzler is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “The impact of hand surgery on human identity and expression.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
