KUZEL that I was going deer hunting NOV. 7 of 2015, I was sitting in my deer stand opening day, shot my deer on 4th day of season. 6 months after surgery. I feel real good on my shoulder, I had a real bad tear in that shoulder. DR. KUZEL DID A very good job on this 76 year old man. I would recommend DR.

      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.
      in Grand Rapids, MN |
      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
