      Dr. Gargasz just recently performed an arthroplasty in my wrist and thumb for severe arthritis, after trying injections to try to avoid surgery. Now after surgery, the extreme pain is gone and I'm getting ready to start physical therapy. Dr. Garcasz is very compassionate, the staff are very professional and caring.

      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.

      Dr. Gargasz's Care Philosophy

      In my practice at Advanced Hand & Plastic Surgery Center, I serve my patients in the most effective an proven way to provide the quickest recovery and best solution to their hand and upper extremity problems. While I am a surgeon and really enjoy helping my patients surgically, not all hand problems require surgery. In my practice I take the most conservative approach to recovery starting with non-invasive to minimally invasive procedures.
