Dr Rowland worked on my hand twice with great results each time. When I had a random ligament tear he suggested that it was highly unusual based on my actions when it happened and recommended I look further for the root cause. Without that statement I would be curled up in bed by now, hurting too much to move. I took action and found I have several bigger issues that may well have contributed to my hand problems. Because he looked at “why” instead of just “what”, I got the help I needed.
