Expert Hand Surgeon

My friend used him and gave me his name. I insisted on using him when my Primary Physician was making a recommendation. He was excellent. My carpal tunnel surgery went smoothly and my hand (six weeks post surgery) is doing very well. I have feeling again in my index finger and thumb. He is amazing.

Hand,arm and nerve wrap

He is the best. I had surgery on my right hand and arm, and my left hand and arm 2 years ago. A week ago, I had another surgery. He had to do a nerve wrap on my right arm. I'm extremely happy with my results already. He is a fantastic surgeon.
