It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I had carpal tunnel and trigger finger surgery on my left hand.
in Whithouse Station, NJ |
Dr. Boretz is a knowledgeable professional. He confirmed my carpal tunnel in both hands and explained my options. Although he stated he prefers doing one procedure at a time, Dr. Boretz listened to my reasoning and agreed to completing the procedure on both hands at the same time. He went on to thoughtfully explain how he approaches the surgery and why, as well as what I could expect afterwards. I am thrilled to report that I was typing the next day & returned to work earlier than expected.
in Middlesex , NJ |
Dr. Boretz examined my wrist and informed me of my options. We choose a conservative route initially and after returning in 5 days, it became clear that surgery would give me the best results . He explained the break shown on the x-ray and explained the procedure. My surgery went well. It healed quickly. I was very pleased with my outcome.
in Bridgewater, NJ |
Recently had a prodcedure on a second finger due to Dupuytreins Contracture. Both times, from start to finish, my care was wonderful. Will alwaysd recommend Dr. Boretz to all.
in Branchburg, NJ |
Dr Boretz did surgery on my ring finger because I have trigger finger. I was immediately using the finger afterwards. The entire experience was great and I am now using this finger to type.
in Bedminster, NJ |
I had an appointment on Monday, April 25, 2016 with Dr. Robert S. Boretz, M.D. As he specializes in orthopedic hand surgery, I found him very professional, and his knowledge of my issue with my right thumb was immediately told to me within the 1st minute of my appointment. He diagnosed me as having a trigger thumb. He administered 2 shots of cortisone and told me this method should work for a while as it is not a complete cure as arthritis has set in also. No surgery is needed.
New Jersey |
I found I had unexpected confidence with Dr. Boretz. I had immediate attention and surgery for a broken wrist. All my questions were answered, although some of the side effects from my surgery were a startling surprise, the shakes and a log for an arm!
