He is the best, thanks God for him! I'm a hairdresser and I had a multiple fracture on my wrist that was really bad, lots of hardware put in and I was back to work doing hair three months later.

Getting a second opinion, but I am in the same position/frustration as Sue Boettcher. Came in with a simple mallet finger and am now unable to use hand for sports, activities, and reduced everyday/professional effectiveness! I've been complaining to my wife ever since surgery, and seeking to better understand why. I walked in with one identifiable issue, and left with two, as they told me I now have a, "dupuytryn's contracture" tha will need some enzyme shot to "attempt" to straighten out.
in St. Michael, MN |
Had basal thumb joint surgery. Following the surgery and cast removal, it was obvious the surgery was botched up! It looked as though they placed the tendon ribbon on the wrong side of my palm, so it literally looks as though my thumb is coming out of my palm instead of the side of my hand! Prior to the surgery I informed the doctor that I rode a motorcycle. I had to give up riding because of the huge bump that is in the way when gripping the clutch and I no longer had the secure grip!
