I had two carpal tunnel surgeries performed by Dr. Vender. My right hand was done on November 8, 2016 and my left on December 20, 2016. Dr. Vender took the time prior to my surgeries to explain what would happen and answer all of my questions. My worries about undergoing surgery were eased by both his confidence and his kindness. I was extremely happy with the follow-up care provided by Hand Surgery Associates. I highly recommend Dr. Vender and Hand Surgery Associates.

Dr. Michael Vendor recently fused my middle finger due to arthritis. His work is incredible. He is professional and caring towards his patients. His staff and office environment are efficient and caring. I have worked with Dr. Vendor in the past and highly recommend him.

Told me I could return to work with injury and no restrictions. Ended up having surgery soon after. Post surgery, said I could return to full duty work. Ended up having to go to hospital because I was in so much pain. He's sold his soul to the insurance companies. Enjoy your fancy alligator shoes.
