Dr. Karl Nguyen was called to the Sharp Memorial ER, to preform hand surgery after I fell roller blading. I had a deep laceration across my whole hand, palm to palm. The cut was to the bone, cut a tendon and broke my ring finger. Dr. Karl was amazing putting me at ease, doing a local block, and preforming the procedure while in the ER. My follow up care was amazing, my hand has healed wonderfully! I highly recommend him and his staff. Tony Alexander Ruf

iN APRIL 2016 I CUT MY LEFT HAND OFF WITH A MITRE SAW WHILE WORKING AT HOME. TOTALLY SEVERED. UPON ARRIVING AT THE EMERGENCY ROOM DR. NGUYEN HAPPENED TO BE WALKING BY AND WAS RECRUITED/VOLUNTEERED TO TAKE ON THE ENORMOUS TASK OF TRYING TO REATTACH MY LEFT HAND! TWO MONTHS, AND FIVE SURGERIES LATER, MY HAND IS WARM AND PINK. MUCH WORK IS LEFT TO BE DONE BUT I HAVE MY HAND BACK THANKS TO DR. NGUYEN!
