Dr. Jeffrey D Placzek 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.

First physician that helped me with my pain and knew exactly what to look for. I was to the point of not being able to use my left wrist and after 4 years of many other physicians he was the one that made things right.

Extremely pleased with my results!

I suffered for seven years! My hands and eyes are how I make a living and it got to the point where hand braces and soaking in epsom salt no longer eased the pain. I feared surgery may make my hands worse and I would no longer be able to work or do the hobbies I love. Finally I made the call to Dr. Placzek's office. It is the Best thing I have ever done for myself! I no longer wake up at night with my hands and arms tingling! I can ride my snowmobile and motorcycle without stopping due to my hands going numb. I can grip the controls! All is Wonderful!

No Appreciation for Their Patients Time

Office policy states "a 24-hour notice for all appointment cancels or reschedues. A $50 no show fee may be charged for failure to comply with this request". Does this also apply for the doctor who didn't show for my appointment? Absolutely no concern for my time.

Thorough look at the problem

I went to him for carpal tunnel problems and the surgeries were quick and effective. I am now back 4 years later with a different problem. My Family practice doctor wasn't too interested in my elbow problems so I came back here. After an EMG and two MRI's the problem is clearly defined as torn tendons in the elbow and pinched nerve in the spine. Now I can get the correct treatment. I find him to be very thoughtful in tracking the problem.
