Specialties

Dr. Dennis S Kao has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    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.

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Crushed hand

Workers compensation injury. Would not write about my pain complaints in any reports. Refused to run any tests other than x-rays. Only after seeing another doctor who ran the tests was I shown to have nerve damage. Was forced to return to work while being prescribed oxycontin and oxycontin placing me and others in danger.

Wonderful

Dr. Yao is Wonderful. He operated on my son's hand after a car accident (School Teacher on her cell phone, T-Boned him.) The hand was all twisted/turned and he set down with us and explained exactly what was needed and what was to take place. Dr. Yao made us feel comfortable in the fact that even though my son was unable to talk my son understood what was to take place. My son is a Quadriplegic with Brain Damage (on a Stretcher, not a Wheelchair). When it was time to take the bandages off DR YAO said that he would personally come to the Nursing Home and take the bandages off. WHAT A SUPER NEAT MAN/GUY/DOCTOR. When was the last time a Doctor made house calls? For that reason I will give him 50 Stars on the Rating.....this is the most thoughtful, caring Doctor that I have ever met..Dr. Dennis S. Yao....is wonderful and I would recommend him any day of the week/month/year.
