Dr. O'Neill has preformed CMC arthroplasties on both of my thumb joints. I am completely satisfied with the results and frequently recommend him to friends, co-workers and family.

My initial visit was to schedule surgery. He explained to me that there was another option, Xiaflex injections. He explained the procedure and the success rate. His assistant, Deana Price started the process with my insurance. After 14 visits and 8 procedures, my hands are fully functional! I was in the exam room at my scheduled times. I have and will continue to recommend him. Thank You Dr WLO!
