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.

Dr. Von Gillern is the best doctor I've ever known. I have had multiple surgeries on my hands & he has done an excellent job.
This was a terrible experience. Von Gillern uses outdated surgical techniques and does not refer out when necessary. He performed surgery on a normal variant in my hand and completely avoided the ruptured collateral ligament in my 3rd MCP joint. Although he did bill for correcting the collateral ligament which he did not touch. This is evidenced not only by where he made his incision but also by the fact that I had a second surgery by a specialist in Des Moines who confirmed it was untouched. After Von Gillern performed surgery it was clear that my 3rd digit was still grossly misaligned and he tried to explain it away by saying I just had some osteoarthritis. He was evidently unaware of my extensive medical background which makes me believe he probably lies to the majority of his patients when he is unsuccessful in surgery. This man should have his license revoked in my opinion.
