Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gargasz "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."
