I broke a bone in my hand, the same bone in the same hand that I had broken a year ago. Dr. Buncke felt I would mend without surgery, so I opted for casting. While it is not a delightful experience to have a heavy weight pulling down on my arm, I was delighted not to be "antibiotic'd and surgered. The hand has mended and is better than after the previous break. Dr. Buncke's skill, perfectionism, sardonic wit, availability made the whole process "bearable". He's superb.
