I couple years ago a tendon in my right hand ruptured. Our local hand surgeon told me I needed a wrist replacement. I thought that was ridiculous! It was my wrist seemed fine. No pain or swelling. I saw 2 additional hand surgeons who all told me the same thing and I was scheduled to have wrist replacement surgery with the "latest" technique which involved a heavy-duty prosthesis that looked like a cross between a medieval instrument of torture and a garden stake. Since I was going to be seen at Mayo anyway, I asked to have yet a 4th opinion from a hand surgeon there. What LUCK! Dr. Kakar had just devised a much gentler technique that required a very tiny prosthesis and a far less invasive surgery. This was ground breaking. I had it (the "Calamari" procedure) done and it has been nothing less than amazing. I have full use of my hand, full range of motion, no pain. Everything is just A-OK still 2 years later. I am just so very grateful. Plus he is a great guy!
