Dr. Fischer and his team were great!  I was anxious going in, but they were so relaxed and put on country music for me to listen to so my anxiety quickly went down.  The way they talked with me throughout the whole procedure made me feel calm and in good hands.  I went grocery shopping with my husband after the procedure and slept so well that night.  The fact that I didn’t need strong pain medications, just a few Advil is amazing!  I just talked with another stylist here that has a claim with her shoulder and wrist and was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  She told me her provider said she needs an EMG and would be off work for 1 month just after having her carpal tunnel surgery.  She couldn’t believe I didn’t have an EMG and that I was back to work in 4 days!  In our industry, taking 1 month off is scary as we can lose clients.  They will go somewhere else for a haircut or nail appointment.  But a week off – there is no risk of that.  I told her she needs to see Dr. Fischer.

Dr. Dwivedi is a remarkable person! Beginning with our first meeting for my carpal tunnel surgery, surgical procedure, and subsequent check-ups, Dr. Dwivedi was very personable and compassionate, and always had my well-being and recovery in mind. He clearly explained the surgery, and always asked if I had any questions or concerns. He is one of kind and without hesitation I would recommend Dr. Dwivedi for your hand surgery.

I had carpal tunnel surgery on February 20, 2024. From the very minute I arrived at the Blaine Orthopedic Surgery Center, the staff was so kind and respectful! Once I was admitted, the nurses were patient, funny, and so positive! Dr. Wetter treated me with great respect and answered all of my questions. The anesthesiologist was also very nice. The surgery went very smoothly and recovery was quick! I was given detailed instructions about what to do once I got home, and the nurse followed up with a phone call the next day answering my additional questions. The post-op appointment on March 11th went very well, too. Dr. Wetter took his time, telling me that the healing process was going very well. He’s very knowledgeable about this condition and the surgery required for it. Overall, I appreciated everything about the people involved throughout the surgical process. I would highly recommend Dr. Wetter to anyone going through carpal tunnel surgery!

Dr. Gerlach has been wonderful to me. I went to other surgeons, and they were going to put a plate on my wrist, which makes NO wrist. When I found Dr. Gerlach, he looked at my x-rays, said he could do surgery and that I would still have 70% of my wrist motion. In March 2023 I had my left wrist done. It was a major surgery so most healing to get back to normal was about 3 months. After recovering, I was able to hold my fishing pole and filet my fish, until the right wrist went bad. Now this February 2024, Dr. Gerlach did my right wrist. I’m still in recovery but I hope to be fishing in Devils Lake by end of June. Thank you again I highly recommend Dr. Gerlach for any hand or wrist surgery.

I want to give an absolute huge shout out to Dr. Daniel Marek! He cut open my hand and drained infection that was causing serious pain requiring 6 days of hospitalization. He was absolutely amazing and extremely informative. Top notch service!

I saw Dr. Bhatt and I was very impressed (10 out of 10) with the care and knowledge she has in the hand and elbow area. She was easy to speak with and talked about my pain without using all of those big medical terms. I would highly recommend her.

I had multiple cat punctures/bites a few weeks ago. The infection got the best of me and I was admitted to M Health Fairview for bloodwork and IV antibiotics. After careful consideration, Dr. Koch decided I needed surgery to remediate the infection in my hand, as it was spreading into my tendons and joints. This was not something I ever imagined! She talked with me and made me a part of the decision. The surgery went fine and it turned out that it was necessary to have the surgery as the consequences could have been dire. I’m sure this was a very basic surgery for Dr. Koch, but she and her team were very thorough, mindful and compassionate from day one in the hospital to my last follow up appointment.

When I reflect on the experience overall, Dr. Koch comes to mind as an surgeon that I completely trusted throughout and would strongly encourage anyone to seek her out for care. I feel grateful to have been her patient. The healing journey continues. I still have the homemade “shorty” cast she fashioned for me before my surgery. I got very attached to it because it really helped with my pain.

Dr. Olmsted and his team, Matt and Kelli, are simply superlative. I have been a patient with them for ten years and have always been so pleased with their patient interaction, solicitousness, knowledge, and the explanation of the treatment plan. Dr. Olmsted combines adroit skill and experience to provide a salutary outcome. Thank you so much for all of this!

Dr. Bakker did my carpal tunnel revision. He was very professional and very kind. I appreciated the time he took with me and the care and concern that he showed. I am doing much better now thanks to his surgical skills.

Dr. Szalapski has been injecting my arthritic thumb for two years now. I thought I was going to have to give up golf and gardening but Dr. Szalapski encouraged me to try the injection. I was petrified to get a shot in a very small and sensitive joint but it was a very small price to pay for the reward of being able to get back to doing so many things that I enjoy. Thank you Dr. Szalapski!
