Procedure was done expertly with no complications. Healing time was excellent. Dr. O'Neill was very thorough in explaining the procedure and necessary follow up instructions.

He did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand in 2009 and I have had NO residual numbness. I started having pain in my thumb joints in November, 2015 and the pain remained constant. I saw Dr. O'Neill in May, 2016. He recommended injections and advised they may be painful. I had them in both thumbs and by the next day, I have no pain in my thumbs joints! I am extremely satisfied!

Great dr He's short sweet and to the point. He's truly concerned about his patients wellbeing. Had CTRS 3 yrs ago now on left hand and I'm returning for surgery on the right. I wouldn't trust my hands to anyone else.
