I’ve been in a cast since February, 2018 and just now getting out today on September, 2018. I have been through three scalfoid surgeries since then both on my left and right one on my right and two on my left. Dr. Marchessault has been with me supporting me, helping me, and has been with me making sure i’m healing to my best. 10/10 best doctor i’ve ever had, not just that but an amazing man. Having him is your best bet.??

I had LRTI in February of this past year. I was relieved to learn during my first visit with Dr. Marchessault that he was familiar with CRPS and the effects surgery can have on it. He recommended a nerve block before surgery and collaborated with my physician to assure this would take place. I did require a second block a few weeks after surgery but with it and PT, the outcome of my surgery was a success. Thank you Dr. Marchessault for your compassion and excellent surgical skills!

I would definitely recommend Dr. Marchessault, he was able to provide me with a definitive diagnosis after I was referred to him by a previous provider. He is absolutely professional and explained my diagnosis in every detail. Following my surgical procedure, I was educated about the length of my recovery and what to expect during the recovery period. I was also very impressed with the professionalism of the nurses and office staff. Thank you Dr. Marchessault!

I have seen him twice for carpal tunnel and fractured wrist. With the feacture, I wore a cast for several weeks and it healed. With the carpal tunnel, he ask if he could give me a shot first to see if that helped, and if not I could come back for surgery. He gave me a shot in the wrist and it has never bothered me again! I think he’s a very good Surgeon and have heard very good things about him!

This Man is outstanding - as a person and a physician. We know because we talked with him and read about his years in the Air Force. He's remarkable. On top of that, he is very congenial. Couldn't ask for anyone more kind, compassionate and sincere. He's good at hand surgery for sure. He did a surgery for me and my life is greatly improved due to the success of it. We feel blessed that we were referred to him. (We being my husband and I.) The waiting time in the waiting room is worth it.

I will always recommend Dr. Marchessault to everyone, he is the finest doctor I have ever come in contact with . So very caring,and concerned for his patients. He did a very difficult surgery on my hand with rigorous detailed therapy, time consuming, and lengthly, believing I would follow through with it. His confidence in me to be active with therapy I believe made his part in my recovery so much easier! He sent me to a hand therapist that he had great confidence in and this meant success!!!

Dr Marchessault far exceeds a 5 star rating. Not only does he excel in results with surgery but you will never meet a nicer and more knowledgeable man. He is more than a surgeon We have been blessed to have met him.

Dr. Marchessault did surgery on my right hand on November 22, 2016. My first two fingers joints were bone to bone causing severe pain. He replaced the material between the joints. Since the surgery there has been very little pain. I am able to use my hand to complete any task that I desire with no pain. A great Surgeon and person.

After the traumatic amputation of my dominant right hand (8/28/2017) Dr. Marchessault revised the amputation site to enhance my ability to use a prosthesis. Surgery was totally successful and my arm healed pain-free in less than a month. With a prosthesis I am now nearly as functional as before the accident. Dr. Marchessault is a skilled surgeon who treated me with care and compassion. He understood and addressed my concerns and convinced me that loss of a limb was not the end of the world

How was your experience with Dr. Marchessault?

About Me

The hand has once been quoted as, "the creator of human civilization". It is an amazing part of our body I have passionately studied and learned to treat. I want future patients to know I will take time to get to know their problem, listen to their expectations and work toward a plan to reach those expectations.
