- 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.

I went in with a whole list of questions written on a piece of paper, all of which were answered carefully and thoughtfully by Dr. Moghtaderi. I appreciated the time he spent explaining the details regarding everything I needed to know, such as: the kinds of tests that needed to be done to determine the underlying cause of my condition and the results of those tests, possible risk factors related to surgery, the entire surgical procedure from beginning to end, what to do and what not to do after undergoing surgery, and even important tips to know after removing the stitches (i.e. not to carry anything over 5 lbs during the recovery state). Basically, he gave me just what I asked for - complete and solid ANSWERS. I felt I could trust his professionalism, skills and recommendations after our first consultation. I chose Dr. Moghtaderi to be my surgeon on the same day I met him and scheduled my procedure right away. The only information that he wasn't too sure of was how much time it would take for the nerves in my joint to heal, and if they would actually be able to heal at a 100% rate. However, these factors are left to chance (depending on how damaged the nerves were and for how long they've remained damaged). I was just glad he didn't lie to me or exaggerate the success rate just to obtain another patient/surgery, like some other doctors do. He did guarantee that the pain in my arm would go away and that I would be feeling much better than I did before surgery. He was definitely right! I used to have a hard time just holding a cup in my hand. Now, I still have some numbness but I feel much more comfortable doing everyday tasks. If I have to name something negative: The only thing I didn't like was that Dr. Moghtaderi wasn't present in the recovery room after the surgery. I mean, his attending physician was there, who was attentive and nice but from a patient's point-of-view, it'd be better, more personal and a little more professional if the surgeon, himself, checked up on his patients or at least accompanied his fellow attendings. The next time I saw him was at my follow-up appointment. Definitely recommend him! I know ratings can be very different amongst reviewers but trust me when I say you should meet him first, and see for yourself if he's the right surgeon for you. He was for me!
I don't understand how this person can be called a doctor. He does not explain anything. He does not want to answer any questions and if you push for a question to be answered, then you will receive a "I KNOW MORE THAN YOU-SO DON'T ASK" type of answer. He is very condescending and lacks respect for his patients. If you care about your health, do not go to this doctor because he does not care about you.
