I would highly recommend Dr.Merritt to any one with a hand or wrist problem. he did wonders for my hand and wrist. I have feeling in my fingertips for the first time in years and my wrist works again. I will be going back for surgery on my other wrist. I don't think you can find a better hand surgeon. chuck
