Patient Reviews
Mar 14, 2021
I went to Dr. Nelson to see about having my trigger fingers fixed by surgery. Dr. Nelson took an assessment of my strength, how my fingers moved and popped etc. Dr Nelson checked my arm strength along with my neck and shoulders mobility. He did what I feel is a very thorough examination. They had me get a couple X-rays before the appointment and he pointed out where I have arthritis. In the end of the appointment he said that the usual surgical patient of his is much more crippled and in much more pain that I am at this point and he did not recommend surgery now. Dr. recommend wrapping my finger to lengthen the muscle to see if it will recover without surgery. I’ve always felt in back of my mind that if you go to a surgeon they most likely will recommend surgery. I’m so impressed that Dr. Nelson has integrity and won’t recommend surgery just because he can do it. I trust Dr. Nelson.
