Specialties

Dr. Edward R Calkins has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

performed surgery for a condition that did not exist. Had to resign from my 40 year career because of it.

Overrated

I walked into Dr. Calkins' office hoping for an answer to my condition. But I got the exact opposite; I waited a half hour just so he could pop right into the office and tell me that I was fine, when clearly I wasn't. How every CNA/MA there that saw me prior could tell me that something looked wrong but the actual doctor didn't shows a lack of care that he barely put into the visit. I was very disappointed that he didn't explain to me any further steps to take to find out about my condition. Unless there is something truly seriously wrong, please do your best to avoid seeing Dr. Calkins.
