FELL AND BROKE SCAPHIOD BONE IN WRIST. DR SMERLIS PERFORMED SURGERY AND THANKS TO HIM AND THE GREAT STAFF AT TIDEWATER ORTHOPAEDIC HAND THERAPY (TERRY, STACEY, AND CREW) IM BACK TO WORK.
in Hampton, VA |
Dr. Smerlis saved my arm and my career. After shattering my wrist in an auto accident, I was told by another surgeon that regaining full strength and mobility in my wrist would not be possible. Without full use of my wrist, my career would have been compromised. Dr. Smerlis repaired my wrist and I was able to regain full mobility and strength. He is amazing!
