My wife Joyce had her wrist fused by this doctor. The surgery was botched by the doctor using a piece of metal far larger and wider than my wrist. She is in constant pain with the back of her hand turning blue and swelling due to a reaction to who knows what type of metal was used in the procedure. Nobody can help her with this. We am seeking another surgeon to do this over again properly!
