Dr Yanish was very informative and the surgery was just as expected. I highly recommend him the for arthroscopic carpal tunnel procedure that I had done.. I had my other hand done with the open cut procedure and the recovery took 3 times as long. It's been 6 weeks since the surgery with Dr Yanish...more

Dr. Yanish performed carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. I had been diagnosed with severe capal tunnel in both hands. I was extremely pleased with him as a doctor/surgeon.

I had carpal and ulnar tunnel surgery on my hand. The outcome was very poor. My hand is partially numb. I am sorrry I ever went to see Dr. Yanish. Each surgery he did on my hand made it progressively worse. He argued that it required time and he was the best surgeon. Both are wrong statements...more
