Typically great Experience
I have a pinkie that is starting to trigger m, so I went to my “Go To” Orthopaedic Doctor! I got a Cortisone shot for the short term. Dr. Riggenbach has been incredible since he has done two other trigger finger surgeries. Also, had x-rays done on my right shoulder with nothing going on structurally and Michael used his extensive knowledge to figure out a nerve issue! His X-ray tech and nurse are equally as professional, caring and very conversive and personable! Awesome experience, as I have come to expect!

Doc fixed my hand!
Visit Dr. R for my hand after severing two tendon on my dominant index finger. He reattached my two tendon with excellent results. I did my rehab and after 6 months it's 95%. I couldn't be more happy. I'm sure I'll be 100%

Solid Professional
The only negative I have was the wait time, but I attribute that to the fact that the doctor takes his time with each patient and gives them the time and respect they deserve. When I saw him, he asked questions and reviewed my range of motion, and told me what the next plans are.

I am a 75 yr old, very active, athletic man. Dr Riggenbach has helped me with multiple issues with my left hand and wrist. I have Dupuytren’s Contracture in the third finger of my my left hand. He fixed that with Xiaflex, a non invasive procedure. I also have a ganglion cyst on my wrist. He has aspirated it twice, relieving pain. I also have “a lot of arthritis” in the same wrist. He’s given me several corticosteroid injections that do relieve pain. His staff is incredibly helpful and professional.

Very Experienced Dr and staff
It's very obvious that both the doctor and the staff have much experience and great knowledge on all aspects of orthopedic care. Very professional and courteous and their office and Facilities are very nice and very clean. Had to get a cortisone shot for the first time in my thumb wrist area, and Dr Riggenbach did everything he could to get it done quickly and efficiently with as little pain as possible. Just one day later and already feels better!

Dr Riggenbach listen to his patient first! He will keep you informed of all options available for the injury/ailment so you can make the decision on how to proceed. If surgery is the only option he lays out the procedure and recovery time line.

Outstanding Hand Surgeon
I saw Dr. Riggenbach after breaking my right arm at the wrist. He clearly explained to the extent of my injury and what my treatment options were. Given Given my objective of returning to a very active lifestyle as soon as possible, I opted for Dr. Riggenbach implanting a titanium plate in my right radius. Less than two months since the surgery, working with an occupational therapist, I have already regained much of my range of motion and have begun working to regain all of my strength. This progress is possible because of Dr. Riggenbach's skill as an orthopedic surgeon. I trusted him completely, and my trust has been rewarded. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
