Experience and Track Record

Experience is critical when choosing the right hand and wrist surgeon for you. When searching for your treatment options, choose someone with a vast array of experience treating various conditions, such as De Quervain’s Disease, Scaphoid fractures, finger arthritis and wrist arthritis. Inquire about your surgeon’s experience and track record for successful procedures, and even ask for patient testimonials to see if similar procedures have been performed for your condition.

Seeking out a surgeon with great reviews from previous patients, or word of mouth from friends and family can be a good way to build trust with your chosen surgeon. Look for online reviews and patient testimonials to see how well other people recommend their healthcare provider. Testimonials can show your surgeon’s bedside manner, communication skills and overall patient experience, giving you confidence in what can otherwise be a daunting experience.

Other important factors to consider when searching for a hand and wrist surgeon are the surgeon’s communication style, accessibility and technological advancements. Effective communication is a crucial component of any surgery, especially during the initial consultation, the procedure and the aftercare. A good surgeon will consider your concerns, help to answer any questions you may have regarding the procedure and ensure you are aware of every step from surgery through to recovery. 

Choosing a surgeon who is placed conveniently to your location can be important for follow-ups, reducing the stress associated with pre-and post-operative care. Consider where the surgeon’s practice is and how easy you can access it.

Finally, there are constant technological advancements within the hand and wrist field. It can be helpful to inquire about the surgeon’s access to the latest technology and whether they embrace contemporary treatments and procedures, allowing you a faster recovery and improved outcomes.
