Specialties

Dr. John G Papaila 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.

  • 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.

Waste of time and money

This Dr was one of the most rude and condescending people I have ever met. He was disrespectful and unprofessional. If you have any kind of weight problem, he's not the Dr for you. All he talked about was my weight and barely addressed the issue at hand. I left feeling degraded with a knot in my gut. His arrogance about my diagnosis was impalpabe.

He ruined my hand. Went to him with a jammed finger. Surgery not successful. Over two dozen visits with a physical therapist did not help. He was always too much in a hurry and didn't explain his reasoning for surgery.
