Doctor Rodner and the entire staff at UCONN Health who worked with me, provided excellent care, from surgery to rehab. In my opinion Dr Rodner, is a tremendous Hand Surgeon. I have no hesitation what so ever in recommending Doctor Rodner, and the entire staff at UCONN for any type of hand surgery.

Dr. Rodner has excellent bed side manner, is highly skilled and is fun to be around. He is also competent and was immediately able to diagnose my thumb pain and developed a plan of action, which ended up being surgery but I am so happy with the results. I would highly recommend that anyone experiencing hand pain go to see him, he is the best!!!

Waited over 1 hour to be seen. He was obviously running behind. He spoke so quickly that I though he was dismissive of my problem. I would not return to him.

Being mid-50's with terribly arthritic hands is not fun. Dr Craig Rodner, UConn, fused the DIP joint on my right index finger, giving me use of my right hand (my predominant hand) once again. I wish I could attach the "before and after" picture. It's quite remarkable. The pain is gone and my finger is straight and usable again. I cannot thank Dr Rodner enough for the gift. His office staff is super professional and always friendly. His surgical team answered all my many questions. 5-stars!

I have had carpal tunnel in both my hands. I let the right hand go to far before seeing Dr. Rodner. I was told that the procedure would relieve my pain bit that the feeling in my hand would probably not return. I had the operation in early 2016 Several months later, went to Dr. Rodner for pain in my left hand. He gave me an injection which relieved the new pain for approximately a year. Pain returned, went back for another injection pain relieved. Also, 95% feeling returned to right hand.

I was referred to Dr. Rodner because of his great reputation. And I'm glad I made the decision to see him he was confident in his ability to do hand surgery and made the process very easy and fast. 6 weeks post op and I'm pain free, recovery amazingly and glad I went the route I did.
