      Dr. Rosenwasser, a brilliant, comprehensive and caring orthopedic surgeon corrected a complex wrist fracture with internal fixation 5 years ago. The surgery went well with 100% recovery. My wrist had been severely deformed from an accident; not only had my wrist returned to normal activity, it is aesthetically pleasing. Recently had a non-displaced fracture- rather than go to an ER, I wanted the best medical care. The staff quickly accommodated an appointment. Highly recommend Dr. Rosenwasser.
