I had 3 different surgeries with Dr. Glickel and each one was very successful. He is also kind and concerned and listens well. I couldn't recommend him enough if you need hand or shoulder surgery.

When I injured by wrist mid April and was told by ER physicians I needed surgery, I turned to my brother in law who was the chairman of Anesthesiology at Universithy of Penn. The head of Orthopedic surgery there referred me to Dr. Glickel. Three months later, the trust I placed in Dr. Glickel proved to contribute towards my emotional and physical healing. today. Thank you Dr. Glickel and thank you too to his assistant Bendi who arranged the surgery and post operative care.

I so wish I had done this sooner. My finger is now straight (before hand was resembling a claw) the operation was so easy and no pain> My hand felt better even the next day all pain from the past years gone.

I've broken both wrists in the last four years, and needed surgery for both. Dr Glickel was my surgeon both times. Each surgery was 100% successful. Dr. Glickel is a extremely capable surgeon, but more importantly, he is patient,kind, and thoughtful.

I am extremely grateful for Dr. Glickel. He is an expert in his field. When I severed two tendons in my hand I was not sure what the future looked like for its mobility. He showed true concern and never made me feel like he was in a hurry. At nearly two months post-op my hand is on track to be 100% and the scars are healing beautifully. Thanks to his brilliance and surgical skills, I have made great progress throughout my recovery. I am thankful for this great outcome and positive experience.

I came to Dr. Glickel for my De Quervain's tenosynovitis a couple of years ago. He diagnosed it and gave me an injection in my wrist that was supposed to allievate the pain for about six months, but it actually was two years before it flared up again. When I returned to Dr. Glickel, he explained that he could either give me another shot, which would provide temporary results, or perform surgery to correct the problem permanently. I opted for the surgery. Dr. Glickel explained everything involved thoroughly, answered every question thoughtfully, and scheduled the procedure for the following week. Pre-surgery, he explained every step of what he would be doing and what I could expect immediately after, and in the ensuing weeks and months. In just two months, there is only a trace amount of discomfort, a small fading scar from the incision, and the De Quervain's is permanently gone. Dr. Glickel does amazing work, and I wish all doctors had his patient and professional bedside manner.
