In October I severed a nerve in my left hand 90% and lost most feeling in my index finger. I was referred to Dr. Piorkowski and he immediately scheduled surgery to repair the nerve. The Hand Center is a well run machine, the Dr and therapists are excellent and listen to your questions and concerns. Fast forward to January 22nd 2018 and I am completely healed and have about 90% of the feeling back. I could not be happier with the outcome !!
My son's finger was crushed in an accident on New years Eve. Dr. P was called into CCMC in the afternoon, saw, diagnosed, performed a four hour revascularization surgery, and met with us afterwards in my son's room after midnight. He was very thorough and patient and answered all of our questions. We weren't rushed. His confidence made it all a bit less scary. Dr. P. Was in the next morning for 7am rounds as well. We've seen him for several followup appointments and he always takes the time to go through everything. His knowledge, experience and professionalism are top notch.
Dr. Piorkowski handled a complex below the knee amputation for me after a motorcycle accident. Through his efforts we were able to keep the amputation below the knee and get my residual limb stabilized so that I had the least issue adapting to my prosthesis as possible. He was easily reachable, even not during office hours, as situations arose, to guide me with any issues. I would, and have, recommended Dr. Piorkowski to anyone that would benefit from his services.
Dr. Piorkowski has hands truly blessed by God. Following a catastrophic car accident where my arm was shattered and degloved, Dr. Piorkowski took bold and courageous steps to save my arm. Nearly four months later I am a testimony to that courage and boldness. I am still in OT therapy but dr. Piorkowski is right there with me. His care and concern for his patients is genuine, making each of us feel like we are his most important patient!
