Patient Comments (2)

People should be very cautious about scheduling carpal tunnel surgery. A portion of patients do not get relief and some get worse. Mine is the latter. Follow up consultation not easy to schedule.

Dr. Whitney repaired my son's broken and dislocated pinkie finger four years ago and it has held up very well. My son is playing goalie for a college team and his fingers take a lot of abuse but the pinkie is doing great. Also good communicator and friendly. I recommend him highly.
