I experienced a very severe wrist fracture in August of 2018. The experts described it as a "shattered" wrist. Dr. Fischer was able to put me back together with the help of some titanium steel plates and screws. My wrist will probably never be 100% but I can tell you he did an outstanding job with everything he had to work with. I would recommend Dr. Fischer to anyone with a severe injury of this type. He is an outstanding surgeon. Thank you Dr. Fischer!
