Dr. Elliot Ames has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

I have gone to Elliot Ames for various reasons for over 10 years and have always been very satisfied. Most recently, I had surgery for a trigger finger. The experienc was excellent from beginning to end. He is a perfectionist and is emphatic about following his guidelines for the best possible outcomes - especially preventing any infections. He is a very caring, skilled, and dedicated physician. I highly recommend this TOP DOC physician.

Kind, caring, knowledgable and very helpful

I thought Dr. Ames was very professional, caring and knowledgeable. He helped me out with my workman's comp issues, called me back the same day I called him and seemed like he really cared about fixing my wrist and getting my back to normal. I am scheduled for surgery with him this week so I'll update more after that experience. In regards to his staff, they were very nice and very helpful in the voorhees office.... Kind, caring, and compassionate. Really helped me when I felt frustrated and overwhelmed with what was going on (dealing with workmans comp and the needing surgery and a lot of tests within a few days).
