Radial and ulnar displaced fractures repair

Excellent doctor-had three bad fractures, and had to have a plate screwed into my wrist. Easy to talk to, and did great work.

I went to the ER when I injured my right hand by accidentally firing an old tear gas pen from the 60's. Dr. Pater did an excellent job cleaning the wound and restoring my hand to operative condition. The lengthy scar is barely visible and I am undergoing physical therapy to attain full function of my hand. He is a fantastic hand surgeon!

Excellent, highly skilled

Surgery on my thumb with the potential for very painful post-surgical recovery of up to six weeks was so skillfully done that the level of recovery pain was very tolerable and recovery time shorter than expected. Highly recommend this very skilled surgeon.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Excellent Orthopedic Surgeon!

I came to Dr. Pater with a left wrist injury. At the appointment, Dr. Pater was very friendly and asked a lot of questions. He was engaged with me and showed that he truly cared about my injury. I ended up needing surgery for my wrist (thanks to that stupid fall I had, I ended up with a torn TFCC.) Dr. Pater spent a lot of time with me before the surgery explaining what was going to happen and answering questions. The surgery went great and I don't have any problems what so ever! My wrist is as good as new. Throughout this whole process, Dr. Pater has been an excellent orthopedist who truly cares about the well being of his patients. I would definitely use again and would recommend to anyone!
