I had both the carpal tunnel and elbow surgery done at the same time in Oct 2017 and I had my doubts about getting any relief from all the discomfort I was experiencing. Dr Merrick assured me that it might take up to a year to heal properly and to have better feeling in my hand. Its been 7 months...more

I had an incident on a Sunday morning and by the looks of it I expected that it would just be cut off. Dr Merrick came into the ER to see me and scheduled surgery for the next day, and I am happy to say that I still have my finger. Great Skills.
