Fracture Distal Radius and Rheumatoid Arthritis

“After breaking my wrist in November 2006, I needed to see a Hand and Wrist specialist, and I knew exactly where to go. My husband had surgery for Dupuytren’s Contracture a few weeks prior by Dr. Ross Nathan, so I knew Dr. Nathan was who I wanted to treat my wrist. In addition, I have suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis for years. When I saw Dr. Nathan, my fingers were ‘deformed,’ so when I saw Dr. Nathan he asked me why I had not had my fingers fixed before. I explained that every Rheumatologist I had seen said it was not a ‘good idea.’ In March 2007, Dr. Nathan replaced the knuckles in my left hand. I was thrilled – I always wanted to have straight fingers! That surgery went so well that in March 2008 Dr. Nathan performed surgery on my right hand. I must say that my hands not only look great, but I have no pain and they function great too! Dr.Nathan is a wonderful surgeon and a wonderful person too! I will always be grateful to Dr. Nathan and his staff at The Hand & Wrist Center!”
