Dr. Walker is the Best Hand Surgeon

I went to several hand surgeons locally and found no relief for my pain. Dr. Walker was able to diagnose my arthritis and perform a minimal invasive proceedure using an artificial spacer in my CMC joint (thumb). My recovery was much shorter and easier using the spacer than the more aggressive surgery of havesting the tendon out of the forearm to use it as a spacer.Dr. Walker is the kindest man. He listens to the patient, he is knowledgeable, and has a wonderful bedside manner. He really puts an anxious patient at ease. Dr. Walker is a two hour drive from my home but well worth the drive. As long as he is in practice, I won't use any other hand surgeon.While at the hospital having my surgery, I was stopped by total strangers who were sing praises of the great works the Dr. Walker had done for family members or friends. I feel truly blessed to have found Dr. Walker and the other Doctors in his practice.
