Dr. Otto operated on my late wife following a fall in January 5, 2017 in which she fractured all bones in her left wrist. Dr. Otto was amazing. She operated that evening at San Antonio's NE Baptist Hospital inserting what appears to be in excess of 14 pins. Within weeks my wife again had use of her hand. Superb work.

I had LRTI surgery on 1/24/19 for basal joint Arthritis. I highly recommend her. Total recovery takes a while, but it’s very do-able. The procedure is nothing to worry about. I’m right-handed, and the surgery was on my right hand. I was on my computer in two(2) days and driving in a week.

She is the only hand surgeon in town who can repair extreme cases and she is the only surgeon I would ever allow to touch any bone in my body. She does elbow surgery and repaired my elbow 2 months ago. I am doing so well I only needed 2 weeks of PT. She did carpal tunnel surgery and trigger thumb release on my husband and he was never in pain after the surgery. He has full use of the hand. I am having trigger finger release surgery this Friday and wouldn’t have any other doctor do it.

I have to agree with previous reviews with uncaring, and unprofessional. Saw her twice for Basal joint Osteoarthritis. She cancelled second appointment at drop of the hat for 5th of July taking a longer Holiday after I came back a day early!! Then I waited 90 minutes to see her for her to only give me a painful exam, which left me hurting for days now. She wanted to give me ANTI-SEIZURE Medicine for my thumb, CRAZY!! She said well that’s what Americans want. I walked out never going back!!

Broke my elbow into 10 pieces. Two surgeons wouldn't touch it. Dr. Otto repaired it with two plate and 5 screws. Recovery is going well. Dr. Otto is very professional, but down to business (as she's one of the few surgeons who can take the extreme cases). If your looking for warm and fuzzy...get a puppy. But I wouldn't let it perform surgery on you. Call Otto when you need the very best.

Dr Otto repaired my injured right elbow in 2002 and my left hand in 2008. Her skill as a surgeon is exceptional. Her caring approach to surgery and healing hastened my recovery each time. I have recently found myself needing additional medical help with my right hand. My first thought was of Dr. Otto. I trust her surgical skill, her judgement and the recovery plan she will implement.
