Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

If you ask questions, Dr Dan will answer them. Depending on the patient's ability to understand the surgical procedure, Dr Murphy will take the appropriate amount of time to explain what is needed to address the patient's concerns. Having been a patient with SOS for over 40yrs and many many surgeries I am very happy with my experiences with Dr Murphy.
Didn't explain my options for a small lump on finger, only surgery. Spent under 5 min on diagnosis-said cyst, turned out to be a bone spur. Never told I would receive general anesthetic. Pre-op/post-op instructions and directions arrived after surgery performed. Did not have time to talk to me after surgery. Dr did not attend first follow up. Second follow-up waited 1hr, saw Dr Murphy for 1min 45 sec. Was rude & dismissive, as were nurses.
I am at a loss as to why Dr. Murphy would have any negative reviews. I think he is one of the best doctors hands down. He is professional, caring and listens. I highly recommend him!! On the website Healthgrades he had lower marks and cant figure out why. He has cured both my carpal and cupital tunnel and removed a ganglion cyst.
