Great Job for our entire family

Dr Linburg reattached ligaments in my thumb that was incorrectly treated when I was in Asia. Even after 6 weeks being treated incorrectly, Dr Limburg was able to reattach the ligament while I was awake and watching the entire surgery. I recovered about 90% use which was fantastic considering the delay I had before seeing him. He also corrected carpal tunneling in both of my wife's wrists - it has been years with no problems at all. Finally he operated on my 80 year old father's ganglion cysts - he has recovered full use of his hand in a very short time!

Dr. Linburg was an excellent surgeon. He got me right in, and booked surgery right away. Now, after healing from my knuckle being replaced, I'm on the road to recovery!

Professional with Kind Demeanor

Being a victim of white coat fever ("WCF"), this is one of a few physicians that has the ability to put patients at ease. No rhetoric, condescending attitude - respect with professionalism. Great for WCF's.
