Dr Ward is most knowledgable and offers the most effective treatment for the problem. He takes the time to thorooughly explain the issues and answers any quations you have. Dr Ward previously completed left and right hand carpel tunnel surgery on me and the results were perfect! In fact it was the first time that I had absolutely no pain after the surgery or during the short recover period. I have already recommended Dr Ward to a freind who also is having carpel tunnel issues..

I last saw Dr Ward for a hand problem in 2001. He treated me with care and compassion and solved my problem. I had no hesitation in returning to see him about another issue with a hand. During this last visit Dr Ward and his team examined me, diagnosed the problem and offered a solution. I have no hesitation about recommending Dr Ward.
Dr Ward has fixed three trigger fingers in his office without going into the hospital and has helped my daughter with her injured wrist. I highly recommend anyone with hand issues to see Dr Ward for his excellent treatment.d

Dr Ward represents everything you want to find in the doctor
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Ward did a major clean out of my wrist, which went fine. However, at no time prior, or immediately after the surgery did he mention that it would be 6 months to a year before my wrist would be 100%! I'm now 10 weeks out from the surgery, and slowly regaining a general use of the wrist, the one I would normally use for eating, writing, etc. Dr. Ward also seemed very disinterested in proscribing physical therapy. If you do use him, make sure you get a clear statement of recovery time, and PT.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Ward explained options and offered to 'squeeze ' my choice into the same visit. This saved a trip to an operating room. The procedure went quickly, and Dr. Ward helped me stay relaxed as he worked.
