- 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.

Had surgery on my hand. Dr. Smerlis allowed me to be very active in my decision making which made the surgerymuch easier. Was completely painfree after 24 hours and in physical therapy after on 5 days. Completely healed with no issues after and can't even find the surgical site when I show others. It is completely gone!
dr smerlis does NOT need to be sanctioned.i wrote that in the heat of anger, pain and frustration. once we sorted out the issue, dr smerlis went above and beyond to treat my hand surgery with the utmost care and skill. i could not believe how fast i healed after surgery and how the pain i have been dealing with for years is finally gone. i would reccomend dr smerlis to any family member or friend who needs "the Best" hand surgeon on the peninsula. dr smerlis is simply one of the most brilliant surgeons i have ever had the fortune to find,and i have had quite a few(7 or 8) surgeries for orthopaedic problems other than hand in the past. thank you DR> SMERLIS!!
