I would highly recommend Dr. Piorkowski at The Hand Center. He offered to handle my surgery in order to get it done as soon as possible because the dislocated bones were beginning to heal in the wrong place. The surgery went very smooth and he made me feel very confident in his abilities and my recovery. I went for my follow up today and my hand is healing very well and the stitches look nice and clean. He's a friendly doctor who really makes you feel comfortable about the whole thing.
