What People Say About Dr. Frank Gerold, MD

Had trigger index finger which had been swollen for several months. Thought I needed surgery. Decided to go to Dr. Gerold and I was extremely happy with the visit. The staff was very personable. I waited less than 10 minutes before I went to get vital signs checked. I then went to the examination room and waited another 10 minutes, after which Dr. Gerold examined my hand and discussed the options and suggested a steroid injection. My finger started feeling well by the time I got home. It's been a week, and there is no swelling and no pain. Really glad I went to see Dr. Gerold.

I've had multiple hand surgeries over the years while living in New Mexico but didn't know any hand surgeons in the valley. In November the flexor tendon in the thumb of my dominant hand ruptured & Dr. Gerold was recommended to me by a friend who is a Physical Therapist. Dr. Gerold was great & spent a lot of time with me. He listened, explained everything thoroughly & did not rush my visit. He didn't know the full extent of the damage but he told me he would be checking everything out when he was doing the surgery. It turned out that the tendon could not be repaired so he had to relocate a tendon from another finger. He was very thorough in the surgery & removed several bone spurs he discovered. Surgery went very well & with the help of Physical Therapy I have regained use of my thumb again & I am back to doing my art work. It may never be perfect but I now have almost full use of my thumb & can do just about anything I need to. He is a great doctor & I highly recommend him

Dr. Gerold did an excellent job with my surgery. I have two incisions, one 2.5 inches and the other 3.5 inches. That look very neat, with wound edges well approximated. I expect that my scars will be barely noticeable when completely healed. Dr. Gerold is current on the latest treatments for upper extremity problems/ injuries.

Dr. Gerold did a fantastic job on my carpal tunnel hand surgery. He thinks "out of the box" and actually cut along my life line, rather than straight up and down on my palm. After about a month, the incision is barely visible. Great doctor, caring, considerate, answers all of your questions, spends as much time with you as you need. I will definitely return to him for any additional surgery I might need, if possible.

I suffered with extreme pain in my left hand for many months. Another orthopedic surgeon misdiagnosed the problem, but Dr. Gerold identified the problem within a few minutes, and the treatment was successful.
