My surgery was December 1. I am still having a great deal of pain and weakness in my hand. I followed through with physical therapy and the use of various braces. I am very disappointed and am wondering if there is anything further I can possible do the regain full use of my hand. During my follow up visits Dr. Lawler advises that I continue to exercise that hand.

Wow, seeing an Orthopedic specialist is tougher than reaching God! My 15 yr old daughter fell and broke her scaphoid bone then developed complications. Our local specialist recommended major surgery with bone grafting. I wanted a 2nd opinion from Dr. Lawler but the scheduler(Erin) was extremely unhelpful and rude to deal with. Dr. Lawler will only issue her opinion through the nurse and refuse to speak to us directly. She showed no concern and the earliest apt available is in 10 weeks!

Dr Lawler does not rush for the knife to resolve a problem. She has great bedside manner and is truly sincere in patient treatment
