Patient Comments (1)
in Cadillac, MI |
Dr. Jacobson saved my right hand, literally! After an infection had eaten the bones in my wrist, Dr. Paul Jacobson successfully removed the infected area (all the wrist bones!) and rebuilt my wrist using a bone from my hip and a steel plate. I now have full use of my right hand. I golf, write, and have all normal feeling in my hand and fingers. Dr. Paul Jacobson is the best surgeon I know, and I have five working fingers attached to a strong wrist to prove it.
