Patient Comments (5)
I have a severe injury to my wrist, hand and nerves. She did my surgery. Continued to have problems. I ended up out of state to be evaluated the one of the countries best hand surgeon. I was told that my surgery by Dr Ward caused me permanent medical problems. Sure didn't need that on top of everything else that is going on with my wrist/hand!!

I have cubital tunnel syndrome and have been suffering with it for over a year. No amount of PT I did worked. I eventually ended up in the hands of Dr. Ward, and I am extremely grateful that I did. Dr. Ward suggested that I consider release surgery even though I was nervous and scared about the prospect of surgery at such a young age. She guided me through it and with her expertise, and after two months post-op, I can confidently say she has given me my life back. Thank you, Dr. Ward.

Everything I have needed to improve my ability, both left and right hands, to live a more comfortable life has been improved with her care. She explained things well and the surgeries on my hands and elbows went good. Her staff was professional and attentive. Her behavior a a doctor was very professional and the use of humor great. I say see her for your surgery.
