He repaired the ligaments in my wrist after a lunate dislocation. Was super helpful and compassionate as well as informative throughout the process and also during my recovery. In the end I have essentially the same range of motion I had before the injury despite losing range of motion being a common aftermath of this type of injury. That is certainly due in large part to his surgical skills. So, when only the best will do, call Dr. Saucedo.

Absolutely wonderful. My wrist was broken in a couple of places, and he put it all back together again. With the subsequent therapy I can use my wrist pretty much as before.

Dr. Saucedo has the skill to sort through my symptoms and explain the reasons for my hand pains. He gave me pain relief, which I had been seeking, and he answered all my questions at each visit. I'm grateful for his remedies and I appreciate his kindness!

I can't say enough about Dr Saucedo. He's not only an incredibly capable surgeon he's also a caring and genuinely kind gentleman. He took his time with me and my husband and explained the entire procedure. We are so grateful to him. I healed quickly from my surgery and am almost at 100% recovery. Thank you, Dr Saucedo, you are the best!

Thanks Dr. Saucedo, for the great job on my left ring trigger finger injection. No more pain, no more suffering. I can play my guitar again and use my hand normally again. I would definitely highly recommend Dr. Saucedo to all of my friends and family .

My visits were over a one year period and involved surgery on both wrists for carpel tunnel. The first surgery also included the removal of a bone in my thumb that was very arthritic. Recovery time was long for the 1st procedure but it was worth the wait. I have full use of my thumb and hands. Doctor Saucedo is a listener. He truly enjoys his work. He followed up with phone calls after each surgery to check and make sure all went as he stated.

Dr. Saucedo is my hand hero, I wouldn’t want any other orthopedic surgeon. He and his entire staff are above and beyond the average, they saved my hand function by making sure I was in surgery as soon as possible. He is kind and compassionate, I am so thankful.

One word: EXCEPTIONAL! Who am I kidding? You cannot use just one word to describe Dr. Saucedo’s outstanding commitment to serving his patients! Dr. Saucedo is a rare doctor. I went through two surgeries with another surgeon that included incredibly difficult recoveries. I was referred to Dr. Saucedo to perform my third surgery! I can see why Dr. Saucedo was chosen! From minute one, he treated me with respect, care and concern. About a week after my surgery, Dr. Saucedo called me in the early evening. He was on his way home and just wanted to check on me. Never I have EVER had a doctor call to check on me. And after hours? Unheard of. I have never experienced such a humble, kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and invested doctor! My recovery two weeks out is nothing like the first two! It has been smooth, and my incision is healing beautifully! I highly recommend Dr. Saucedo for your orthopedic surgery needs! He was amazing to work with, and I feel blessed to be under his care!
