My son was in an atv accident. Lost his tendons, one of his arteries and had severe nerve damage to his wrist/forearm. First dr (can't remember his name) wanted to amputate his forearm. Dr.Mercer was contacted for a second opinion and she decided to attempt to save his arm. She replaced his tendons, full nerve reconstruction and removed the damaged tissue in his arm. If it wasn't for Dr.Mercer my son would've lost his hand. I would recommend her to anybody who is looking for a hand specialist.

She's an excellent orthopedic surgeon and very caring person also. She did surgery on my severely broken arm and wrist, and she did a great job. It's a year later, and I have almost no problems. (Of course I would have at least a problem or two -- I'm 68 and am osteopenic. My point is that she did a GREAT job on an old lady with bone density problems.)

Dr. Mercer performed surgery on my 10 yr old daughters wrist on Jan. 3, 2017. My daughter had a bone out of place and was is so much pain she couldn't even write. After the surgery my daughter is literally doing cartwheels and is not in any more pain. Dr. Mercer is a miracle worker and so sweet!!! I wish I could give her 10 stars not just 5. We love her!!
