Dr. Kuzel performed rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder. I am very happy with the entire process from pre-op to surgery to recovery. The work he performed on my shoulder served as the foundation to a great recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Kuzel to others considering orthopedic surgery.

I had a really messed up thumb from arthritis and was referred to Dr. Kuzel by my orthopedic MD. My thumb was basically being held on by only one tendon. It was painful and I couldn't use it. Dr. Kuzel explained exactly what was wrong and suggested a few options. He explained what he needed to do and what the procedure would entail. He listened to any concerns I had and addressed them. He is a kind, compassionate and skilled surgeon and very easy to talk to. His staff is professional and caring!

I Dr. Kuzel for a sports related finger injury that had progressed to the point of immobility. He was able to break up scar tissue under anethesia, and followed up with PT. After a year of not being able to use the finger at all, he was able to get it moving and functional again. If you experience a hard to heal hand injury, I highly recommend Dr. Kuzel.

Over this past summer Dr. Kuzel performed carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. The surgery went very well on both occasions. The feeling in my hands continues to improve and I have regained enough feeling to able to button my shirts again. Dr. Kuzel and his staff are very professional and patient centered. When I had a question I found it easy to contact and get answers from Dr. Kuzel's office. Based on my experience have complete confidence in and highly recommend Dr. Kuzel.
