I had Carpal Tunnel release surgery 14 days ago. The facility and the Doctor were both great. My hand feels very good for 14 days. I will use this doctor again if I ever have another orthopedic need!

My 1st surgical experience was so wonderful overall that I really can't find the words. I am thankful to Dr. McCullouch but also the staff that communicated well with me the week of my surgery for Dupuytren's contracuture and nodule removal. After 3 months I can see and feel the difference. I did PT mainly at home which was great. Thank you so very much.

Dr McCulloch is an extremely skillful surgeon. He performed needle Aponeurotomy on my hand and straightened my finger in a short time. I had avoided surgery or injections for many years. He recommended this procedure. I can now do a lot of things I could not do because of my problem. Many thanks.

Was referred to Dr McCulloch by my PCP for treatment of Dupuytren's contracture on my left hand. Eventually this led to surgery and very impressive results. Everyone in his organization, from Dr McCulloch, assistants, nurses, and on to therapists were very informative, compassionate, and professional.

Doctor McCulloch operated on my hand which had dupuytren's contracture. Everything from start to finish was 5 stars. The office visits were informative, the operation enjoyable, and the recovery was without problems. Therapists, family, and friends all remark on how well my hand looks and functions. My hand is back to normal and you would need to look very closely in order to see the scar. Doctor McCulloch did a great job! I highly recommend him.

I went to Dr. McCulloch after testing revealed carpal tunnel had returned in my right hand after surgery over 10 years ago. He was very straight forward and explained all my options including the fact that a second surgery would be more difficult. I went ahead with the surgery and Dr. McCulloch explained everything he would do and what I could expect afterwards. Felt relief from the pain days after surgery. If I ever need another surgery I would go back to Dr. McCulloch in a heartbeat!

Dr. McCulloch did surgery to remove a ganglion cyst on my left wrist. He did an excellent job, explaining my options, and walking me through the process once I decided on surgery. I highly recommend him and his staff at Advanced Orthopedics.

Dr. McCulloch did surgery for carpal tunnel on both of my hands at one time and even after only two weeks my hands are wonderful! He is very kind, and personable and talked to me the whole time he did the surgery. I highly recommend him for carpal tunnel surgery and I had no trouble having both of my hands done at one time! I am finally pain free! He is THE BEST surgeon for hand surgery!

Among all my other troubles I had carpal tunnel in both hands. It was getting very annoying having my hands "fall asleep" while driving. Dr McCulloch repaired both, left then right. I cannot adequately express how much better I feel. I will recommend Dr McCulloch to every person I know that needs this surgery. Outstanding!

I had surgery on my hand due to "trigger" finger. What an amazing process. I was met and guided through the initial reception by wonderful men and women who accompanied me and explained each process. The prep nurses were also extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. McCulloch met with me prior to surgery and provided all information I needed. Surgical nurses were fun and engaging throughout while Dr. played my choice of music during procedure. Dr. McCulloch provides a delightful surgical exp.
