Dr. Yang is the best Surgeon anyone can wish for. He listens carefully to all your inquiries and answers all your questions professionally and caring. Dr. Yang operated on my right arm ulnar bone which I broke. I was in pain and nervous, but when I met Dr. Yang he made me feel at ease. I left his office with a smile and optimistic about my surgery. Its been 2 months since my surgery and my arm is doing better than ever. My scar is beautiful and minimal and no pain at all. Dr. Yang is a miracle.

My experience with Dr. Yang was by far the best I have ever had with a medical professional by a large margin. Dr. Yang and his staff are all top notch professionals and made the entire surgical procedure and subsequent follow-ups pleasant and positive experiences. From the moment I met Dr. Yang, I knew I was in excellent hands and the result of the surgery was even better than I could have ever imagined. Kind, compassionate and extremely professional and thorough.

I have had to trigger finger surgery is performed by Dr. Yang. He is truly a nice guy, listens carefully, answers all questions and is an excellent surgeon. I have up coming rotator cuff surgery which he will perform, and I have the upmost confidence that he will do an excellent job. I have recommended him to a number of friends. Top surgeon!

Love this Doctor. Great bedside manner and a great surgeon. Had 3 hand surgeries with Dr Yang and they were all so easy! Actually went back to work the same day. No pain and no stiffness after. Amazingly happy how well everything went.

Four years ago, Dr. Yang, an orthopaedic surgeon, performed surgery on my right hand’s pinky finger and recently on my left hand’s middle, ring, and pinky fingers for dupuytren’s contractures, both operations were successful. Dr. Yang listens to your concerns, analyzes the condition and takes a corrective conservative approach. He performs surgery, only when it's absolutely necessary. In New York City, where you have the largest selection of physicians and surgeons in the world, it speaks volum

Dr. Yang performed open carpal tunnel surgery on both hands along with trigger finger release on both thumbs and one finger in separate surgeries.I couldn't be happier with my choice of surgeon. He made a a very stressful situation the best it could be. I felt confident and assured that the procedure was quick and effective and I would be recover with no issues. I have full use of both hands with no pain or numbness shortly after surgery. I highly recommend... he is tops in his profession!

I saw Dr. Yang after another doctor recommended surgery for my fracture because of his amazing credentials and reputation and more than 25 years of experience. He was director at Lennox Hill Hospital and now head of the hand and arm center at NYU. He participates in my insurance too. He actually told me I didn't need surgery! I'm writing because my arm is 100% after casting and physical therapy! Thanks Dr. Yang for saving me from an operation.

Incredibly thorough, kind, and competent! Explained everything in detail. He removed a painful tumor from my forearm and I was back to work in two weeks. No pain, no scar and full function. His team was awesome! I would trust him with any of my friends or family.

Dr. Yang was extremely professional, thorough, competent and seems to sincerely care about his patients. Excellent staff. His initial exam was the right combo of listening to my symptoms and performing diagnostics (unlike a six minute exam I had with another doctor that barely looked at me). Dr. Yang did not rush me into surgery - we tried other avenues first. I was in incredible chronic pain before the surgery. The surgery restored my quality of life, and recovery was better than expected.

Dr. Yang's professionalism, attentiveness, kindness, and follow-up were over the top. His staff were excellent as well. If a surgical experience can be fantastic than this was it. I have recommended him to many people and will continue to do so in the future.

Not only was his work so good that you can't even find a scar, but I healed quickly and without any complications. He is the nicest man, caring and kind and he answers all questions with patience and clarity.
Terrific bedside manner, professional, and overall a caring Doctor. Would highly recommend him to anyone seeking the best hand and wrist orthopedic surgeon.

My experience with Dr. Yang was very delighful. His explanations of my laceration and the procedure for surgery were greatly soothing. I want to thank Dr. Yang for his work, he was able to repair my tendons and nerves in my dominant hand; therefore, returning back to work after only 3 months recovery. His work is unbelievable amazing, i could barely notice the scar. Thank you so much Dr. Yang.

A true caring professional. After meeting with Dr. Yang you wouldn't want anyone else doing your surgery. Very helpful in explaining your whole procedure and making sure you understand it. When you leave his office you will be confident you are under the best care.

Thank you Dr. Yang. The trigger finger that I had is totally recovered after the surgery. You are one of the best doctor I have encountered so far in my life.
