He has done surgery on both of my hands for different problems. I have never had any problems related to the surgery. He is a great surgeon, and I trust him and his decision. I highly recommend him.

So glad I went to Dr O'Neill for my hand surgery. I could not be more pleased. No one wants to have surgery, but when you have to, it's so great to have all your questions answered and have great results!

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!
