Patient Comments (1)

Other doctors have given me very few options for my wrist and the future was bleak. Dr Blenhaim has great insight to reduce pain and give me my mobility back. He is very innovative and knows what he is doing. I am very glad I met him. If I proceed with surgery, I will update the review.
