- 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.

Every appointment I had was an hour late. This was extremely irritating because I didn't get out of work until 2:30 am so I was lucky to be asleep by 3:30 and I would have to wake up early to drive and hour and a half to his office and the latest appointment I was allowed to have through the worker's comp agency was 10:30. Then, he prescribed me Bextra, even though I wrote SULFA huge as my first allergy. I had a bad allergic reaction and the doctors said I was lucky to be alive. I confronted Dr Wong about it and he just said that people with minor sulfa allergies can take Bextra, but not Celebrex which is why he prescribed my Bextra. I told him he should ask his patients how severe of an allergy they have because I was told by a family doctor that I could die if I had any sulfa based drugs. The other problem was my huge scar from my surgery. When other surgeons and the physical therapists asked what type of surgery I had, they were surprised because my scar was so big. Dr Kuz did another surgery on me a couple years later and he scoped my entire wrist with only three tiny holes, when Dr Wong gave me a 2" scar for one small area.
