I am a pianist and have been to Dr Lane. He was superior to anyone I have seen. I trust him implicitly.

He was very patronizing with an almost total lack of affect. Gave me cortisone injections without freezing my hand to numb it. Caused me great pain. He barely blinked.

Dr. Lane reconstructed my hand in 1995 with a 14 hour surgery to remove a malignant cyst from my left wrist. He saved my life. The cancer was aggressive. It was a terrifying experience for me. Well, over 20 years later, I need a tune up. The first one. I broke a screw and 1/2 of it is being removed...more
