My husband had a thumb trauma injury commonly referred to as 'gamekeeper's thumb' where the entire thumb tendon was torn and disconnected. Dr. Bickel did his surgery and gave excellent advice for post care to recover use of his hand. Everything was done excellently and without mishap. I believe he is a gifted surgeon and would have no worries for hand surgery with him.
