Saw Dr Grames fort a trigger thumb issue (actually x2) after no improvement with P/T, braces, pain meds/creams and injections. He was so very helpful with solutions, no judgement that I immediately opted for surgery. It’s such a painful injury when dealing with digits and no other way to control it.

As with many, I have been going through a tough time in this pandemic. I injured my knees and was referred to Dr. Grames. I have been emotional and had many questions. Every time I have seen Dr. Grames he is very patient and answers all of my questions. I will definitely recommend him.

Got surgery for my torn meniscus and ACL. Surgery went smooth and Dr. Grames did a great job with my surgery and guiding after my surgery. I would recommend to anyone. I’m an athlete trying to get back to playing basketball and beach volleyball.
