I have to update my previous review. I had 2 surgeries, the 2nd being a wrist replacement. Now 2 1/2 year after the wrist replacement I am having another surgery to replace the stem in my prosthesis which is wobbly according to 2 other orthopedic surgeons. When I visited with Dr Curd about it he said it wasn't wobbly and when I looked at the xray from 3 months after the wrist replacement it appears the same as it does now showing its wobbly. Not happy with the response I received from him.

Dr. Curd and his staff have been supportive in my recovery from surgery. It is a long drive for appointments. As a teacher on a reservation school, I appreciate the patience and courtesy that is afforded me. Thank you Dr. Curd and Staff, Gary

Dr. Curd and his PA are wonderful! They both took plenty of time and really listened to what was going on with my hand and took great care of me. Dr. Curd tried injections before jumping straight to surgery, which I really appreciated. In the end, I did need surgery, and the wait time from my office visit to surgery was quick. My surgery was a great success and I'm back to using my hand without pain. I highly recommend Dr. Blake Curd.

Dr. Curd has performed two different procedures on my right hand for Dupytrens contracture. The first procedure involved surgery on my two smallest fingers three years ago. The second procedure involved using new technology (a chemical injection) to rid my right thumb of Dupytrens contracture. This last procedure was very enlightening because I did not have to undergo surgery and the associated post-surgery recovery. Dr. Curd is very patient oriented and very up-to-date in medical technology.

I met with this Dr. Twice. On both occassions he answered my questions to my satisfaction. I feel like he is very down to earth and would go out of his way to ensure that I get the best of treatment.
