      Dr. Fryer gave me the choice of either an injection or surgery for my trigger finger. I opted for the injection which was done quickly and immediately following my decision. I was advised that if the injection didn't resolve the problem, that I should return. He was just as pleasant as he was 11 years ago when I saw him for a trigger thumb (with injection).
      He explained every detail of my surgery during my pre-op visit. He listened to my concerns.

      7 weeks after my wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament and I am already gaining more strength and motion that I should. Dr. Fryer is good at what he does in terms of surgery, but in appointments he is a minimalist. If you want information you have to ask questions.

      He did my carpal tunnel surgery a few years ago on both wrists. They healed perfectly and they are 100% better. I do heavy work with my hands daily and my arms have never had any pain or problems. Perfect surgery and full recovery back to 100%. His style is a bit gruff but I prefer straight talk from my doctor as opposed to sugar coated. He is very professional.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
