Dr. Amor removed hardware for repairing a broken elbow 15 years ago that had become problematic. I couldn't be happier with the results of the surgery. Immediately after waking up from anesthesia my arm was mobile. I had no cast and needed no physical therapy. The incision is tender but the removal of the hardware was without problem entirely. I only wish I had not waited so long to seek help for my condition. I'm very pleased with his assessment of what was required and the results.

Dr. Amor is an incredible doctor. He really knows what he's doing, and he takes the time to get to know his patients. One of the sweetest people you'll meet. 5/5 I definitely recommend him!

I had a minor surgical procedure to treat DeQuervain's. Experience has been great. Great staff, bedside manner, results, etc. Two weeks later and I've gained most use of my hand back. I expect that once I am fully healed, I'll be completely back to normal. Soooo glad I decided to have the procedure.

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.
