      I had a carpal tunnel release performed on my left hand. He explained the procedure, which was an open repair including the advantages of an open procedure vs. laparoscopic. He provided the initial post op exercises after surgery so I could get started right away. As a result I needed only 4 physical therapy visits. I have a complete return of hand function. I would recommend him to someone needing this procedure.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
