Patient Comments (1)
in Wauwatosa, WI |
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 in. He did a wonderful procedure and stitch work and I just could not be happier with the results!!!! His staff is so personable and professional and thanks to all of them, also. Sincerely, Ann Fiebiger
