Marleen - ( carpal tunnel syndrome)

Dr Henley at first seemed a bit standoff, but he is just very profesional . Carpal tunnel surgery went great, now two weeks after surgery, things are going great. I can now sleep without my brace, and the tingling feeling is gone.

Just had my last visit today - Yeah! Dr. Henley did an awesome job with my wrist fracture. I was so scared at first when he told me it would need plate and screws. It was my dominant hand, the right. He worked his magic - skill and experience! So pleased I am close to what I had before the injury. PT staff was great. What a wonderful staff too. Many thanks!!

Mrs.

My experience with thumb surgery was very good. I was made to feel at ease from start to finish. The anesthesiologist was also very good. The worse that I had was a 2+ hours wait at the Specialty Hospital before my surgery. That was ridiculous!

Wish I had done it sooner!

Dr Henley's videos were very helpful. I emailed a request for more elaboration on a particular point and the answer was prompt and complete. note that his emailed answer to me was blocked by my email span settings. but I caught my error and placed his address into my address book and flagged it as friend. He is honest and factual concerning the pros and cons of surgery. In my case the results were optimal. I experienced almost no pain, not even needing any medication post-op. I received almost immediate relieve from the old feeling of tingling in my hands. Within two weeks of having my stitches removed the site was nearly back to normal. I was happily surprised because the surgery leaves a pronounced scar at the beginning. But my 'scars' smoothed out remarkably well and in time I believe they will be undetectable. One thing I almost messed up was the instruction to not eat or drink after midnight. I knew that some clear liquid or black coffee was allowed, but I did not know that it had a three hour before surgery limitation. Waiting for my turn at the surgery I took a sip of water, which caused me to have to wait two hours. So, heads up! Don't eat anything after midnight. You will be asked what time you last ate and what exactly did you eat. And, don't drink any water or black coffee within a three hour window of your surgery. If you drink any milk or creamer you have to wait eight hours before you can have anesthesia. You will be asked what time you had liquids and what they were.
