A serious in home accident landed me in Riverside Hospital with a large wrist laceration involving the tendons that controled my fingers. Young at the time I was afraid I would lose the use of them. Dr. Nappi did an incredible job repairing the damage and as a result of that and the secondary care I now have full use and minimal nerve damage remaining. I will always be grateful for his skill and talent as a surgeon. This short paragraph simply cannot do this incredible doctor justice.

Dr. Nappi is an excellent listener and a skilled surgeon. I saw him after another hand surgeon recommended an amputation of all or portions of my left index finger. Dr. Nappi took a different approach and not only do I still have my index finger but it is fully functional and pain free. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

When my left hand became swollen, and the arthritis was winning, I knew I was in trouble. Upon visiting Dr. Nappi for first visit, he asked a number of questions. He helped me get my life back. I never realized how much we use our thumbs. Dr. Nappi will exhaust all options before surgery is. Dr. Nappi is an excellent hand surgeon and I trust him with my family. It's well worth the trip to C-bus. He is located at the Hand Center. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Nappi.
