Dr Persch did a four corner wrist fusion surgery on my left wrist.I was so happy when we first started working together,But he mislead me on everything about my surgery.First my pain level is worse than when I was first injured, but now my wrist doesn't move and it's been six months since surgery .My New doctor just did an MRI and told me I have a wrist of an 80-year-old man,By the way I'm 45 nobody told me anything about this.I was told the pain would start to ease up after about 3 weeksLIAR

Dr. Pertsch is an outstanding, well-trained, highly-skilled surgeon with a professional, warm, compassionate demeanor. He patiently answers questions to alleviate anxiety & to plan a surgery diligently & precisely. My first procedure with Dr. P occurred in '97; now that I've moved from the Bay Area, I will continue to work with him because he's the only plastic surgeon to whom I'd entrust my health & well-being. Simply, he is an expert in his field, the very best who does beautiful work!
