Barrington, IL |
Dr. Biafora is great. I had surgery on my R thumb for trigger thumb. We tried a convservative approach with an injection. Unfortunately it did not work, so we went ahead with the surgery to release the tendon. After surgery I had no pain, and was back to my normal activities within a week. I recommended Dr Biafora to my friend, who was equally pleased with her care. Thank you Dr. Biafora
