Patient Comments (1)

I have had the most excellent surgeon perform a bilateral carpal tunnel surgery with an endoscope. It is such a precise surgery that Dr. Olson performed, flawlessly. I have complete relief in just 10 days, post operatively and the strength in both hands has vastly improved even with the stitches...more
