21 years ago I severely lacerated my right hand, bilaterally, basically filleted it in half. It was a work accident and the artery and the ulner nerve were severed, along with some bone. Dr. Shealy spent over 4 hours putting it all back together. Due to his supreme skill I regained full strength in my grip and only have numbness and a substantial scar to remind me of that horrific agternoon. I recommend Dr. Shealy to anyone looking for hand surgeon, in my opinion he is the best.
