|Comment||Brian's response was quick, clear, and gave me much more information than my doctor ever did. It's sad so many doctors approximately my age still want to keep themselves on a pedestal. Drs. ask if you have any questions as they have 1 foot out the door. I was astounded to find a site like this. Even more importantly I was astounded to find an expert that I can talk to like Brian. I expected this to go back and forth with Brian asking me to clarify questions or tell me that he could not answer any of them. I really expected to get a message back saying this was way too long and involved and he couldn't answer any with this much detail. Could I shorten the questions? I intend to follow up with a few more questions but didn't want to delay rating Brian's help any longer. If I could, I would rate him 11 stars. Thank you very much Brian.|

I can answer questions about both conservative and post-operative rehabilitation for UPPER extremity injuries. These include but are not limited to: fractures, tendon repairs, tendon transfers, nerve repairs, lacerations, tenolysis procedures, TFCC injuries, repetitive motion disorders, reconstructive procedures. I have an advanced knowledge of UPPER extremity anatomy and industrial rehabilitation. I have extensive splinting skills for injuries to the upper extremity. Although not a physician or a surgeon I have worked closely with world renowned upper extremity specialists for over 10 years. I can give general information on what some of the most common upper extremity surgeries involve. I can reference those procedures as well. PLEASE DON'T ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE NECK, SHOULDER, ARM/HAND. I'M NOT QUALIFIED AND KNOW ABSOLUTELY ZERO ABOUT BACKS/HIPS/KNEES/ANKLES/ETC. THANK YOU!!!
10+ years working closely with orthopedic and hand surgeons and their patients. I have treated patients with small lacerations to major reconstructive procedures. My knowledge base includes both conservative and post-operative rehab protocols and care for upper extremity injuries. I have treated patients all the way from day 1 post-op to return-to-work status.
