Patient Reviews (3)
Dallas, TX |
I've seen Dr. Boulas regularly since 2004 for several issues that have arisen with my hands and wrists, including carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers, a ganglion cyst, and de Quervain's tendonitis. He has performed several surgeries--each has gone very well. Dr. Boulas has a high standard of patient care. He has a plain small office with a small staff, but he more than makes up for any minor issues there with his excellent skills as a surgeon and clinician.

Dr. Boulas not only successfully treated the problem I had with my hand (no surgery required), on very short notice, but also identified other concerns from blood tests and forwarded the results to my other specialists. He was genuinely interested in my overall health.

had several hand surgeries - complete satisfaction.

Dr. Boulas says...

Board-certified in Orthopaedic Surgery with a Certificate of Added Qualifications in Surgery of the Hand, I specialize in the treatment of traumatic injuries and a variety of disorders affecting the hand and upper extremity, employing reconstructive and microsurgical techniques in the management of arthritic, neurologic, work-related, and congenital conditions. After medical school, I completed a 5-year residency program in Orthopaedic Surgery. I subsequently obtained my Fellowship in Hand & Upper Extremity, followed by traveling fellowships throughout Europe and subspecialty training in shoulder and elbow surgery back in the US. More recently, I was full time faculty in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery for 6 years at a major US medical school involved in teaching, research, and patient care. I continue to publish in my subspecialty field.
