Treated my 23 year old son for fractured radius requiring surgery with plate and pins. Thought he was awesome, straight forward, answered all our questions, timely and friendly. Felt very confident and comfortable in his ability to repair. Great results!

I was referred to Dr. Gabow after 2 previous Dr's didn't know how to fix my wrist because of how bad the fracture was. I even had two previous surgeries from these docs with all sorts of complications from them but it was still not fixed. Dr. Gabow performed surgery by putting a plate and 7 or so screws in to hold the 7 small pieces back together. I'm still recovering but I'm finally typing , lifting things and using my hand for all sorts of stuff that I wondered if I'd ever be able to do again!

This man is the best. He's served me three times: all for Dupuytrens Contracture. He's professional, compassionate, knowledgeable, informed, friendly, fun, and inspires confidence. I moved to South Carolina recently and wish I were still in CT so I could have him check out my new "issue." Seriously, Dr. Gabow is outstanding! I love this man. This is what a doctor should be. He has served me well! TKO, Conway, SC

I have had multiple tendon issues in both of my hands for years and Dr. Gabow is the absolute best out there. I have had injections an 2 surgeries with him and my hands now work perfectly and he hid the scars well.

Dr. Gabow is very patient and understanding. He explained my diagnosis and treatment very clearly to the point where I was looking forward to surgery. The surgery went well, and the follow-up care and Recovery is going well also. I would highly recommend him to family and friends. Thank you Dr Gabow!
