Patient Comments (5)

Allowed me to choose local anesthetic only. Provided enough pain medication to recover from surgeries— carpal tunnel release and trigger thumb. Listened to my concerns. Great support staff.

Dr. Lujan is an amazing surgeon! My hand was shattered from a bicycle accident. He and his staff did a wonderful job of surgically repairing my hand. As a physical therapist and business owner I appreciate his skill and the level of professionalism from the whole New Mexico Orthopedics group.

I love Dr Lujan - he is very friendly and personable remembering me each visit.. I have arthritis in my thumbs and he is able to help me so I can use my thumbs without pain. He operated on my husband with excellent results. I would highly recommend.
