- 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.

Dr.Schalow did what others said was impossible. I went from not being able to feel my hand and straighten three of my fingers. It has been 13 months now. But I can straighten all of my fingers and have full feeling without any pain. She is very kind and knowledgeable. She is honest and straight forward. Her staff is remarkable as well. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing her services.
Dr. Schalow is so kind, compassionate, and thorough, and I am so appreciative. She validated my pain, even though it wasn't present at the time of my appointment; showed me on x-rays why I had pain. Took time to answer my questions. THE BEST!!! And the same can be said for each staff member with whom I interacted.
I could not have asked for better treatment from Dr. Schalow or her staff. She is obviously a very busy doctor, but didn't rush in & out like many do. She is complemented by a wonderful staff as well. Because of my experience, my sister already has an appointment with her. Dr. Schalow is a class act!
