      I had a partial amputation of a finger from a saw. Dr.Bodavula performed the surgery and follow up visits afterward. I think he did an excellent job with the surgery and explained the procedure very well. He will answer any questions that you have.

      Dr. Bodavula removed a cancerous growth on my hand. He did a great job. He took time to explain every procedure and encouraged me to ask any questions or concerns. He never rushes the office visits like some doctors do. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

      As a practicing icu nurse, when I almost cut my finger off I called 911 and went to my hospital. The ER contacted Dr, Bodavula for surgery that day. I did not know we had a hand specialist and was happy we did. Dr. Bodavula was amazing, calmed my freaking out nerves. Told me and my nervous husband was he was going to do and was VERY honest at was recovery was going to be like. His smile and the time he took with my questions eased this nurses heart. He is just amazing!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
