I suffered a grade 3 skiers thumb which required surgery. Dr Failla was exceptional. His staff are also excellent. I cannot thank him and his staff enough for the treatment I received.

I have problems with degenerative arthritis. Dr. Failla removed a cyst from a finger and gives me periodic cortisone shots for pain. He is extremely thorough and provides full explanations of problems/options.
