Patient Comments (1)
in Hiawatha, KS. |
My husband injured his hand in a bad fall last November. He was taken to KU MED. Dr. Endress was called in at 1:30AM to do emergency surgery on my husband's hand. He did an excellent job repairing a difficult, rare peri-lunate dislocation and fracture of the scaphoid bone. His nurse, Casey, is as awesome as is Dr. Endress himself! He and his entire staff are so friendly, take time to listen, & we do not have to wait very long in the waiting room. I would highly recommend this excellent surgeon.
