Dr. Mehlhoff operated on both my hands for Dupuytren's Contracture. Each operation had excellent results. My fingers were straightened out and remain so after many years.

Best surgeon ever!

The nicest person. Takes time to truly understand your problem and provides a very thorough diagnosis and proposed treatment. Fully explains his recommendation, options, recovery and prognosis. Dr. Mehlhoff performed elbow surgery on me in 2010; everything exactly as he explained. Excellent recovery. He has my highest respect as a person, doctor and surgeon.

Dupuytren's Contracture

Dr. Mehlhoff removed large nodes and finger-curling tenacles from my hands with excellent results. He cautioned that Dupuytren's Contracture, a hereditary disease, might return. Many years later, both of my hands are fine and functioning like they should.
